The incident report further says that hotel staff believed Griffen was possibly under the influence of alcohol or narcotics and that Griffen had checked into the hotel last week; staff said he caused a disturbance "each time he walks through the lobby". He still showed up to the team's practice facility Saturday and was sent home.
The report details a series of conversations between Griffen and police in which he expressed fear for his life, mentioned the number 777 and asked if police had slain his parents.
The Star-Tribune reports that Griffen's wife said her husband "awoke in the middle of the night on September 16 and left the home" and that Griffen does that "at times when he is fighting "demons" in his head".
Griffen was reportedly kicked out of the Vikings' practice on Saturday, according to a report from the Minnetrista Police Department that was obtained by KSTP-TV.
Griffen's wife then called and said he was at teammate Trae Waynes' home down the road. Police later confirmed that Griffen had been to Waynes' home and "opened the front door and then quickly ran away when the door opened".
Turns out, he went to a nearby gas station where he saw a man he recognized - but did not know well.
The nine-year veteran is now being evaluated and treated at a mental health facility after a number of incidents Saturday involving police and medical personnel, league sources told Paul Walsh of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. The reporting officer placed a health and welfare hold on Griffen "based upon his actions and information I had acquired about him". At a meeting at a nearby park, Tiffany Griffen told police that she'd been struggling with her husband's mental state, that he had been talking irrationally, leaving the house unexpectedly and may have made some suicidal remarks by text message earlier in September.
