Caleb King Arrested As A Pro Football Player Now... (UPDATED- He's Been Cut)

((HT: MyFoxTwinCities))

Caleb King can now add that charge to his ever-lengthy police blotter resume- this time for third-degree assault.

He is accused of beating up a man who told King "resembled a celebrity."

Whatever in the hell that means...

The victim was hospitalized in serious condition with a skull fracture, facial fractures and injuries that required more than 50 stitches to close. Doctors also believe the victim may have a "very serious brain injury."

King was celebrating a friend's 21st birthday at a party where the victim was teasing King about his resemblance to an unnamed celebrity...

At 3:15 in the morning... and the HQ knows what we all say about anything that happens that late (or that early)

King apparently didn't like what the guy said, followed the victim outside and hit him in the face- after pulling him out of a car where the victim had called 9-1-1 about Caleb King himself.

The victim wanted the family of the party to call the police in addition to his own call, but when the cops arrived, they said that there was nothing wrong

Nice hosts for a party...

There haven't been any charges filed yet and, get this, the local police commander says King denies assaulting the man, saying the victim fell to the ground when King was talking to him.

More when we know more...

TUESDAY UPDATE: He's been released...
Here's the latest from our friends at MyFoxTwinCities

Despite the action by the Vikings, Lee R. Wolfgram Sr. (King's attorney) said his client has no history of violent behavior, and said he showed (instead) "great restraint in attempting to calm a situation after an offensive racial remark was directed at him."

Wolfgram is correct- to a point. King had some issues at the University of Georgia, but they were more with driver's licenses that expired and the subsequent non-appearances in court...
