Minnesota Vikings fullback Jerome Felton has been arrested on suspicion of driving while impaired and refusing to submit to a chemical test. Eden Prairie police say Felton was arrested Friday just before midnight. A message left with police Saturday seeking additional details wasn't immediately returned. Online court records show Felton was released from jail Saturday after posting $12,000 bond. A court appearance is set for July 18. The Vikings say they're aware of the situation and working to gather more information. Felton was drafted in 2008 by the Detroit Lions. The 25-year-old signed with Minnesota as a free agent in March. In a five-year career that also included seasons with Carolina and Indianapolis, Felton has 42 carries for 136 yards. He also has 34 career receptions for 280 yards.
