    MIAMI -- Minnesota Vikings tackle Bryant McKinnie was arrested for aggravated battery after a street brawl outside a nightclub early Sunday.

    McKinnie also was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest without violence, according to a police report.

    Authorities were called to Club Space after a fight broke out. McKinnie had been thrown out by a nightclub security guard and was arguing and spit on Eric Otero, according to a police report.

    Otero, 32, said he wouldn't press charges if McKinnie left. Authorities said the former University of Miami player then went to a nearby strip club, but later returned to Club Space and fought with Otero again.

    Miami Police found McKinnie "in the middle of a large crowd, throwing punches and again yelling obscenities," according to the police report.

    Police told McKinnie to stop. He refused and boarded a bus. The bus driver was ordered not to drive away.

    The 6-foot-8, 335-pound McKinnie, a staple on the Vikings' offensive line since being drafted out of Miami in 2002, was arrested and bonded out for $9,000 at 2:25 p.m., Miami-Dade County Corrections Department spokeswoman Janelle Hall said.

    Miami Police did not immediately return calls left by the Associated Press.

    McKinnie has been in trouble before. The NFL fined him one game check for his role in a rowdy team boat party on Lake Minnetonka in 2005. McKinnie pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct in that incident.

    The Vikings released a statement Sunday that said, "We are aware of the situation with Bryant McKinnie. We will respond further once we have collected the appropriate information."

    A call placed Sunday night to Ben Dogra, McKinnie's agent, wasn't immediately returned.

    It is unclear what caused the brawl. Police said McKinnie was transported to the jail with injuries, but the extent was not known.

    according to reports he struck the bouncer in the head with a heavy pole. The cat is 6'8" over 350 lbs. Why in the hell would he need a pole to beat someone up.

    That is what you get when you draft a University of Miami Hurricane. Trouble!

    That heavy "Pole" was 25 year old Izador Polanski. He was sitting there having a drink, and McKinnie picked him up and bonked the bouncer on the head with him! :wink:

    I have to question the guy's manhood for using a pole to strike the bouncer. I mean he is six foot eight, 350 lbs. What a loser!
