MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minnesota Vikings cornerback Chris Cook says he did not pull a gun on a neighbor during an argument that led to his arrest.

Cook tells the Star Tribune that he was riding his bike near his Lynchburg, Va. home Saturday when a neighbor began yelling at him. He says the neighbor wrongly believed Cook had called police about the neighbor's brother.

Cook said he had recently received a license to carry a concealed weapon, but denied pulling a gun on the man as WSET-TV reported. Lynchburg Police Capt. Ryan Zuidema tells The Associated Press that Cook is accused of brandishing a firearm.

The team is not allowed to have contact with Cook because of the NFL lockout.

Cook played in six games last season as a rookie, recording 21 tackles.
