Bernard Berrian was cited Monday night for driving 104 miles per hour in a 60 mph zone.

Adrian Peterson wasn't the only Minnesota Vikings player speeding in the past few days.

Late Friday, the State Patrol confirmed that wide receiver Bernard Berrian was cited on Monday night for driving 104 miles per hour in a 60 mile-per-hour zone on Interstate 694 in Oakdale.

According to patrol Capt. Matt Langer, a trooper stopped Berrian at 9:38 p.m. in the southbound lane.

Meanwhile, a tape of Peterson's Saturday traffic stop shows the speedy running back might not have been watching the speedometer closely.

Peterson expressed disbelief to the officer that his BMW was clocked at 109 mph.

"How fast you think you were going?" an Edina police officer asked after stopping him on Crosstown Hwy. 62.

When Peterson replied, "85," the officer replied, "you think you were 30 over the limit? I got you going 109." After giving Peterson the ticket, the officer, referring to Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears, told Peterson, "Good luck to you tomorrow."

With that, the two ended their encounter with a handshake.
