Arrested For DWI

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Wes Phillips was arrested on Friday night and charged with misdemeanor operation of a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol.

Phillips was driving a Tesla Model S that was stopped around 9:45 p.m. on Friday on Interstate 394, as Minnesota State Patrol Lt. Jill Frankfurth reported. According to Frankfurth, Phillips “showed signs of impairment,” and his blood alcohol content registered at 0.10%, exceeding the legal limit of 0.08% in Minnesota.

Following the incident, Phillips was booked at the Hennepin County jail on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

Jail records indicate that he posted a $300 bond and was released at 1:26 a.m. A court appearance is scheduled for December 21.

Despite the arrest, Phillips will travel with the Vikings as they prepare to face the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday.

The Vikings issued a statement addressing the situation:

“Wes immediately notified the team following his arrest last night. This morning we contacted the NFL, and after internal discussion, made the decision Wes will travel with the team to Las Vegas this afternoon. We will continue to gather information regarding the incident and have further comment at the appropriate time.”

Currently, in his second season, Phillips joined the Vikings after Kevin O’Connell replaced Mike Zimmer as head coach last season.

He had previously worked with O’Connell with the L.A. Rams in 2020 and 2021, marking his 17th season coaching in the NFL.
