Blue Earth County Jail spokeswoman Amber Carlson says Bomar was booked about 5:15 a.m. Sunday on third-degree driving while intoxicated. Carlson says Bomar has been released. The Vikings picked up the 26-year-old quarterback in late December from the New York Giants practice squad. He was a 15th pick of the fifth round in the 2009 draft after playing two seasons at Sam Houston State.

Bomar was waived by the Giants.|||||||
Bomar lost his job when the Giants acquired veteran quarterback Sage Rosenfels from Minnesota. Rosenfels previously backed up gunslinger Brett Favre with the Vikings. "Bomar's progress has been outstanding," coach Tom Coughlin said. "He's worked very, very hard. He did receive a lot of attention, he did make progress and he did show us what he can do."
Bomar completed 11 of 24 passes for 171 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the Giants' 20-17 win over New England in their preseason finale Thursday.|||||||
Bomar is expected to act as Eli Manning's backup this season.
