NFL great Carl Eller was arrested after allegedly getting into an altercation with law enforcement after being stopped for possible drunken driving. The ex Viking Defensive Lineman and member of “The Purple People Eaters” was apprehended on suspicion of DUI and creating havoc by fleeing police and attacking one of the arresting officers.
The police described the incident as very dangerous as Eller’s SUV sped through a stop sign. The cops chased the vehicle as it ran lights and motored at speeds of up to 60 mph through the Minneapolis area.
Eller’s SUV finally came to a stop when it reached his garage early in the morning on Wednesday.
Spokesman Martin said the policemen requested that the footballer get out of the SUV. He refused at first and then attacked the cops when he did get out. He continued to threaten even though the cops used a Taser which has little effect on the huge Eller. Martin said Eller did not have or request a lawyer. He was questioned but no one knew if he was about to hire an attorney.
