NFL | Update on D. Scott

Kevin Seifert and Paul Walsh, of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, report free-agent DL Darrion Scott (Vikings) was charged Tuesday, May 6, with assaulting his son by holding a plastic dry cleaning bag over his head, while the boy was kicking and screaming. According to the criminal complaint, the boy's mother heard her son's cries and found Scott holding the bag over the boy's head April 26. Scott is charged with felony assault in the third degree, felony domestic assault by strangulation and misdemeanor endangerment of a child. Scott's agent, Tom DiPiero, said Scott did not abuse the child. "Anyone who knows Darrion knows him to be a big 'teddy bear' type of guy, easygoing and never loud or abrasive," DiPiero said. "We believe this nightmare is a terrible mistake and that the child has not been abused, at least not by Darrion."
