ANKATO, Minn (AP) -- The Blue Earth County Jail says Minnesota Vikings quarterback Rhett Bomar was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving early Sunday and later released.


Jail spokeswoman Amber Carlson says Bomar was booked about 5:15 a.m. on third-degree driving while intoxicated.

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 has been getting practice reps behind Donovan McNabb, first-round pick Christian Ponder and Joe Webb.

The Vikings did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
