Minnesota Vikings cornerback Chris Cook has been found not guilty of pulling a gun on a neighbor.

General District Court Judge Edwin Burnette issued the ruling Friday after a 2-hour bench trial. Cook was accused of a misdemeanor count of brandishing a firearm.

Court records show the neighbor, Omar D. Goode, accused Cook of brandishing a handgun on March 12 near the home of Cook's mother in Lynchburg.

Several witnesses agreed an argument occurred between the two men, but Cook denied pulling a gun.

Dean said the judge concluded there was insufficient evidence to find Cook guilty.
