UPDATED (12:34 p.m.): According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Cook has been charged with brandishing a firearm, a misdemeanor, based on a complaint made by his neighbor.

Through it all, though, Cook has tried to remain positive.

"I tried not to let it ruin my weekend," Cook told the paper.


We told you Sunday that Vikings CB Chris Cook had been arrested for allegedly brandishing a handgun during an altercation last weekend in his hometown of Lynchburg, Va.

According to Cook in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, that’s not exactly what happened.

“I wasn’t in any fight or nothing,” Cook told the paper. “It was just an argument.”

Cook Cook said he was riding his bicycle near his home when a neighbor, without provocation, began to yell at him, because the neighbor apparently thought Cook had called the police on the neighbor’s brother.

“You’re not going to scream at me like I’m your child so I screamed back at him,” Cook said.

The man, Cook said, then went to the police and accused Cook of pointing a gun at him. Cook went downtown to fill out paperwork, but he said he wasn’t arrested.

“It’s just crazy,” Cook said. “I just have to deal with it the best way I can. I wish it didn’t happen. I wish I would have never got in an argument, but that’s what happened.”
