The Minnesota Vikings have released linebacker Erin Henderson, who was recently arrested twice on suspicion of drunken driving.

The Vikings announced Henderson's release Friday. Henderson had one season left on his contract with a $1.95 million salary.

Henderson's latest arrest was Jan. 1 after he crashed his sport utility vehicle in Chanhassen.

Henderson is scheduled to appear in court March 3 on charges of second- and third-degree driving while intoxicated and test refusal, possession of a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, and violation of a limited driver's license.

Henderson was moved to middle linebacker last season and the starter there until he was arrested Nov. 19 in Eden Prairie on suspicion of DWI and drug possession. The 27-year-old finished second on the team in tackles last season.
