Vikings wide receiver Koren Robinson is in the Nicollet County jail in southern Minnesota, and he is accused of a long list of crimes starting with driving drunk, the county sheriff said.
ST. PETER, Minn. -- Vikings wide receiver Koren Robinson was charged with one felony count of fleeing in a motor vehicle, two counts of DWI and three other misdemeanors this afternoon in Nicollet County District Court. He was arrested Tuesday night in Mankato after a chase at speeds over 100 mph, police said.
Robinson allegedly had a 0.11 percent blood alcohol level, according to a criminal complaint. In Minnesota the legal definition of drunkenness in drunken-driving cases is a blood alcohol content of 0.08 percent or more.
Robinson also is facing misdemeanor charges of reckless driving, careless driving and driving after suspension.
At a 15-minute hearing this afternoon before Judge Allison L. Krehbiel, Robinson wore an orange jumpsuit and ankle shackles.
His bail was set at $50,000 and his next court date was set for 9 a.m. on Oct. 19. No Vikings' team representatives came to court.
Robinson left the courthouse with his wife, Joy, and declined to comment about the case.
But his attorney, Joe Tamburino, told reporters that Robinson's status with the Vikings is unclear.
"We don't have any information on that, but Mr. Robinson anticipates getting back with his team as soon as possible," Tamburino said.
At a news conference late this morning, Vikings head coach Brad Childress said, Obviously we had an incident last night that was unfortunate.
"I couldn't be more disappointed than for him, than this football team and for this community than to have this happen.
"One of the mandates from the Wilf family is that this ship is run right. I'm trying to create a culture of accountability. You can't be driving when you've been drinking.
"I have sketchy details about (what happened). I'm disappointed but with the same idea that we need to move on."
Minneapolis-based lawyer Joe Tamburino is representing Robinson.
According to a St. Peter Police report released this morning, at about 10:45 p.m. Tuesday officers clocked a blue, 2003 BMW 760Li sedan traveling south at 104 miles per hour in a 55-mph zone on Hwy. 169.
Police officers gave chase but were unable to keep up with the car and radioed ahead to Mankato police for help, the report said.
Mankato police, Blue Earth County Sheriff's deputies, and North Mankato police eventually got the car to stop in Mankato, which is about 13 miles from St. Peter.
Robinson was arrested without incident and his car was towed away. He registered a blood alcohol level of 0.09 percent at 12:18 a.m. today, according to St. Peter police.
Robinson, 26, who is in his second season with the Vikings, reportedly was returning to training camp at Minnesota State University in Mankato.
