MANKATO, Minn (AP) -- Minnesota Vikings quarterback Rhett Bomar has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving.

Blue Earth County Jail spokeswoman Amber Carlson says Bomar was booked about 5:15 a.m. Sunday on third-degree driving while intoxicated. Carlson says Bomar has been released.

The Vikings picked up the 26-year-old quarterback in late December from the New York Giants practice squad. He was a 15th pick of the fifth round in the 2009 draft after playing two seasons at Sam Houston State.

Bomar has been getting practice reps behind Donovan McNabb, first-round pick Christian Ponder and Joe Webb.

The Vikings did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
