Local police said Wednesday they currently are working with Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen to get him to leave his home after responding to a 911 call made by Griffen, in which he said there was an intruder inside of his home and that he needed help.
“Shortly after 3 a.m. (CT), Griffen called 911 from the residence and said someone was inside his home and that he needed help from the police,” the Minnetrista (Minn.) Public Safety Dept. said in a statement Wednesday. “Griffen also told the 911 dispatcher that he fired a weapon but nobody was injured.”
Griffen recently posted a series of social media posts in which he could be seen brandishing a firearm and stating that people “were trying to pop me.”
According to police, authorities were unable to locate an intruder at Griffen’s residence. Police also said they are confident that Griffen is currently alone inside of his home as they work with him to resolve the situation.
