Caleb King Released By Vikings After Assault Arrest, According To Report

It now appears that Caleb King is a former employee of the National Football League. On Tuesday afternoon, Jeremy Fowler the Minnesota Vikings staff writer at the Pioneer Press, tweeted that the Vikings have decided to release King.

King's apparent release steams from his arrest early Saturday morning when he was detained for fracturing the skull of another man at a party that King was attending.The altercation was the result of the victim telling King that he resembled comedian and actor, Eddie Murphy. King allegedly took exception to the remark and followed the victim, 22-year old Andrew Hayek, out of the party and proceeded to beat him.

King was released from jail on Tuesday without any charges being made (he was held for the maximum amount that an individual can be detained without being charged with a crime). It is believed that authorities are still compiling the information and have left the investigation open as "pending," and that a charge will be filed in the near future.

Be that as it may, the Vikings appear to not need any more information and have decided to cut ties with King.
