Erin Henderson has been arrested on suspicion of DUI, according to USA Today's Tom Pelissero.

Chip Scoggins of the Star Tribune tweeted this link, which lays out Henderson's four charges. 

It's the second such arrest in six weeks for Henderson. Pelissero speculates it could mean the end of Henderson's time with the Vikings once rosters are unfrozen.

The Vikings released a statement Thursday morning that said they would comment at the appropriate time.

"We are aware of the matter involving Erin Henderson. We are continuing to gather information and will have further comment at the appropriate time," the Vikings said in the release.

Henderson was arrested Nov. 19 and missed time this season for "personal reasons" that he claimed were unrelated to the first arrest. 

Upon his return to the team he spoke of the difficulties of dealing with life in the NFL and constantly fighting to keep a job. He said he did not want to use the word "depression" when he charazterized the anxiety that accompanies being an NFL player. 

Henderson had said the team provided him the support and resources necessary to deal with whatever problems he was facing. 

Audie Cole filled in capably at middle linebacker and temporarily supplanted Henderson to the weakside linebacker position.

Henderson will remain on the Vikings roster until after the Super Bowl at least, Pelissero notes. 

Ben Goessling of notes that there isn't much a financial road block to cutting Henderson.
