EDEN PRAIRIE, MN (AP) - Minnesota Vikings fullback Jerome Felton is apologizing for being arrested for DUI last weekend.
 
Felton apologized on Wednesday at an optional practice, four days after Eden Prairie police arrested him on suspicion of driving while impaired and refusing to take a chemical test.
 
Felton was contrite on Wednesday, saying he regretted bringing some negative attention to his new team. He was signed in the offseason to compete for the starting fullback job.
 
Vikings coach Leslie Frazier says he was ''extremely disappointed'' when notified of Felton's arrest. Frazier met with Felton to discuss the incident this week, and the fullback was on the field for the entire optional practice on Wednesday.
 
Frazier says he has been stressing the importance of being responsible in the community with the entire team.
