Vikings S Tyrell Johnson was arrested early Tuesday morning for suspicion of driving while impaired. According to Hennepin County records, he was picked up for fourth-degree driving while intoxicated.

State Patrol brought him to jail at 3:15 a.m., and Johnson was released about two hours later.

The Vikings say they are aware of the arrest but have yet to comment further.

Johnson dropped an interception late in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers that could have preserved a victory.
