Minnesota Viking, Chris Cook, Charged with Felony Domestic Assault
I'm Lynn Lumpkin CRWE Newswire Sports Commentator. This is the Sports Corner Chris Cook, a Minnesota Vikings corner-back, was charged with trying to strangle his girlfriend. According to his girlfriend, Cook became upset early Saturday when he found out she had spoken to an ex-boyfriend. The woman told police Cook threw her on the bed at his home near the team's suburban headquarters in Eden Prairie, got on top of her, and grabbed her neck with an open hand, constricting her ability to breathe. The woman said she freed herself by grabbing Cook's shoulder-length hair. Cook then struck her in the ear, sending her crashing into a wall leaving her with a bloody nose and lip in an alleged attack that jeopardizes his status with the team. Charged with felony domestic assault by strangulation, Cook could be charged with a penalty of up to three years in prison and a $5000 fine. The 24-year-old Cook was arrested and released from custody Tuesday on $40000 bail. He cannot leave Minnesota and is barred from contact with the alleged victim. Cook's court appearance is set for this afternoon. Thank you for joining me and stay with us for all your sports updates. I'm Lynn Lumpkin CRWE Newswire Sports Commentator.
