Vikings’ Chris Cook Acquitted Of Assault Charges

Minnesota Vikings cornerback Chris Cook was acquitted of all charges that he assaulted his girlfriend last October, according to ESPN.com.

Cook, 25, missed 10 games last season after he was charged with one count of domestic assault by strangulation and one count of third-degree assault. The Vikings issued a statement after the verdict that said "will meet with Chris in the near future and believe he deserves the opportunity to rejoin our organization,” according to ESPN.com.

According to ESPN.com, Cook will not face discipline under the NFL’s personal conduct policy.

The charges were filed after Cook and his girlfriend had an argument that led to fight in Cook’s town house on Oct. 22. His girlfriend, Chantel Baker, suffered a perforated eardrum and lost hearing in that ear for two weeks, but Cook testified that he acted in self-defense and denied every choking or intending to hurt her, according to ESPN.com.

Cook will enter his third season in the NFL this fall.
