In December, Wes Phillips was arrested for speeding and his blood-alcohol level was found to be above the state’s legal limit. As a result, he has been suspended by the Minnesota Vikings for three weeks without pay.

Phillips showed signs of impairment when he was stopped and his blood-alcohol level was tested at 0.10%. Despite being arrested on Dec. 8, he was released the next day after posting a $300 bond and joined the Vikings on their team flight to Las Vegas later that day. However, he did not face any disciplinary action during the regular season.

The Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell expressed disappointment in Phillips following the arrest, emphasizing that he cared deeply about him. Phillips will miss a significant portion of the team’s pre-draft preparation and the beginning of their offseason strength and conditioning program due to his suspension.

During a press conference in December, Phillips acknowledged his mistake and pledged to learn from it, accepting any discipline that came his way. In February, he pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of careless driving, which included one year of probation, a $378 fine, and eight hours of community service. He is the son of former NFL head coach Wade Phillips and the grandson of former NFL head coach Bum Phillips.
