Minnesota Vikings Tom Johnson (pictured) was reportedly arrested by Minneapolis police and charged with disorderly conduct and trespassing, after he was pepper sprayed and tased by officers because he refused to leave with them, according to TMZ.

The 30-year-old, 6’3″, 288-pound defensive tackle was at an eatery in his town at around 3 a.m. when he allegedly caused a disturbance, which has not been specified by police. The police were summoned to the scene and Johnson was asked to leave the establishment, but he reportedly wouldn’t budge so officers took out their pepper spray and used it on him.

When the pepper spray move by law enforcement allegedly proved to be ineffective on the NFL gridiron player, they reportedly whipped out a stun gun, pacifying him enough to get the cuffs on.

Johnson was taken to a county jail, booked, and then slapped with a $78 bail for the misdemeanor. He is due back in court on the 17th of this month for arraignment.

Meanwhile, Johnson is the third Viking player to run in to trouble with the law recently.  Adrian Peterson was arrested and charged with reckless or negligent injury to a child, after he beat his 4-year-old son with a wooden switch.  Jerome Simpson, a former wide receiver for the team who was days away from being reinstated after a suspension for a drunken driving arrest, was also cited for misdemeanor possession of marijuana, violating limited license restrictions, and driving with an open bottle in July.
