Another Embarrassment for Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings had yet another embarrassing incident involving one of their players when safety Dwight Smith received a misdemeanor citation from police early Saturday for alleged indecent conduct with a 24-year-old woman in a stairwell near a downtown Minneapolis nightclub.

Smith participated in the Vikings' practice today.

First-year coach Brad Childress was given the responsibility of cleaning up the organization's tarnished image when he was hired by owner Zygi Wilf in January. The club released wide receiver Koren Robinson on Saturday after he was arrested during training camp on drunk-driving and fleeing-from-police charges.

"Just because you are here for six months or eight months, that culture does not change immediately," Childress said today, according to the Associated Press. "But that is certainly the goal, and we are not going to stop trying to get that right."
