Vikings release CB indicted on domestic violence charge

The Minnesota Vikings released cornerback Jeff Gladney Tuesday just hours after a grand jury in Texas indicted him on a felony domestic violence charge stemming from an incident there in April.

Gladney, 24, had been accused of hitting, choking and dragging his then-girlfriend across the ground near Dallas during an incident that began in a vehicle the night of April 1. But a grand jury didn’t hear the case until July 29, keeping him in legal limbo for months as the Vikings tried to figure out what to do with him after he started all but one regular-season game last season.

He didn’t participate in spring workouts or training camp after he was arrested in Dallas on April 5. At the same time, he remained on the team roster as general manager Rick Spielman said the team was “letting due process take its course.”
