Vikings offensive coordinator Wes Phillips apologizes for drunken-driving arrest

Vikings offensive coordinator Wes Phillips said Tuesday that he hopes to grow from a DWI arrest on Friday night and apologized for not living up to personal and professional standards.

Phillips, 44, was pulled over around 9:45 p.m. Friday for speeding on Interstate 394 in Minneapolis, according to State Patrol. He showed signs of impairment and registered a blood alcohol level of 0.10%. The legal limit in Minnesota is 0.08%. He was charged with misdemeanor driving while impaired.

Phillips, one of head coach Kevin O'Connell's top assistants, has continued to coach with the team since then, including Sunday's 3-0 win in Las Vegas and Tuesday's walk-through practice.
