MIAMI (AP) -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 another patron, according to a police report.
Miami Police did not immediately return calls left by The Associated Press.
The unidentified patron 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 the same man, authorities said.
McKinnie was arrested and bonded out for $9,000 at 2:25 p.m., Miami-Dade County Corrections Department spokeswoman Janelle Hall said.
The 6-foot-8, 335-pound McKinnie has been a staple on the Vikings' offensive line since being drafted out of Miami in 2002.
He 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.
Calls placed Sunday night to Ben Dogra, McKinnie's agent, and Vikings spokesman Bob Hagan weren't immediately returned.
