Wes Phillips, the offensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings, has consented to a plea agreement in relation to his early December arrest for drunk driving.

The 44-year-old Phillips was accused with DWI. Prosecutors, however, permitted him to enter a guilty plea to a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving.

Phillips is required to do eight hours of community service, pay a $300 fine, and incur a $78 fee.

At approximately 9:45 p.m. on Friday, December 8, Phillips was stopped for speeding on Interstate 394 in Minneapolis, according to Minnesota State Patrol Lt. Jill Frankfurth, who spoke with the Star Tribune.
According to officials, his blood alcohol content was 0.10 percent and he looked to be inebriated. State law sets the legal limit at.08.

Around eleven at night, Phillips was arrested for misdemeanor DWI and taken to the Hennepin County Jail. According to jail records, he was freed shortly before 1:30 a.m. on Saturday after posting a $300 bond.

After his arrest yesterday night, Wes informed the team right away,” the Vikings said in a statement a few hours later.

“We spoke with the NFL this morning, and following internal deliberation, we decided that Wes would accompany the team to Las Vegas this afternoon. We’ll keep collecting details on the incident and provide more commentary when it’s appropriate.
