Vikings security chief Kim Klawiter told police that Griffen wasn't "acting normal lately" and that "it's nearly like he's having a nervous breakdown". A source confirmed to the ABC affiliate that the person under suspicion was Griffen, but the player was not at the hotel when police arrived. The reporting officer placed a health and welfare hold on Griffen "based upon his actions and information I had acquired about him". A source told Anderson that Griffin is "getting assistance on personal matters" and that the National Football League is "comfortable he has a good support system around him". No gun was ever found, according to the report, and Griffen was allowed by police to leave the hotel on his own accord. In the Minnetrista report, Vikings officials denied that Griffen made any threats at the hotel. He asked the man to drive him back to Hotel Ivy, but they wound up back at Griffen's home instead. Griffen then left the hotel and returned to his home on Lake Minnetonka. Additionally, Klawiter told police that the organization was anxious that Griffen could hurt himself, as well as his wife and children, according to the report. Police told Griffen to get back in the ambulance and he did. "We are friends with the Griffen family and we are here to support them in any way possible during these trying times", he said. The driver later told police he "didn't feel safe at all and needed to get out of there", according to the report.

As he was being transported by ambulance, however, paramedics reported that Griffen jumped out of the vehicle "because he was in fear that someone was going to shoot him".

Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen is being treated at a mental health facility after a series of odd incidents have his family and his team anxious about his well-being.

Vikings GM Rick Spielman said the team was "currently focused on Everson's well-being and providing the appropriate support for him and his family". and head coach Mike Zimmer added "it's about him getting better".

Unlike Apple's annual upgrade cycle, it launches a newer "T" variant in roughly six months of the main flagship launch. Though the company has announced the name of the OnePlus 6 successor as the 6T, it is yet to reveal the launch date.

Griffen was withheld from Sunday's 27-6 loss to the previously winless Buffalo Bills at U.S. Bank Stadium because of a knee injury and did not attend the game because of what the team called a personal issue.

"We have a very, very good support program, and our owners do an unbelievable job of giving players all the resources that they need", Zimmer said.

A three-time Pro Bowl pick, Griffen is in his ninth year in the NFL.

"Obviously, he's been a really good model for us, and he's going through a tough time right now", Zimmer said. Griffen registered a half-sack in each of Minnesota's first two games to bring his career total to 62, which is 17th among active National Football League players.
