WR Simpson, in more trouble, released by Vikings

The Associated Press

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Vikings have released wide receiver Jerome Simpson.

The move was made Thursday, following the revelation of misdemeanor charges of driving on a limited driver's license, possession of marijuana in a motor vehicle, and having an open bottle in a motor vehicle for Simpson from a July citation. Police in Bloomington, Minnesota, confirmed the charges.

He has a Nov. 3 arraignment in Hennepin County court, but with Simpson already serving a three-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy, the Vikings didn't wait to assess his status. He would have been eligible to return to the active roster Monday.
