Minnesota Vikings cornerback Chris Cook was arrested on suspicion of brandishing a gun during a fight with another man, WSET-TV reported Sunday.

Cook, 24, was held in Lynchburg, Va., 179 miles southwest of Washington, D.C., shortly after the incident at approximately 5:30pm local time Saturday, according to police.

The Vikings selected the former University of Virginia star with the 34th pick in the 2010 draft.

Cook played just six games during a rookie season that was plagued with knee injuries. His season ended in December when the Vikings placed him on injured reserve.
