Four Minnesota Vikings Players Charged In Connection With "Love Boat" Incident

A prosecutor has charged four Minnesota Vikings players -- including quarterback Daunte Culpepper -- with three misdemeanors apiece in connection with a bawdy boat party earlier this season on Lake Minnetonka.

Culpepper, Bryant McKinnie, Fred Smoot and Moe Williams were charged with indecent conduct, disorderly conduct and lewd or lascivious conduct. The charges were filed Thursday.

According to the criminal complaints, crew members noticed many female passengers going to the lower restroom area and returning in scant clothing.

The court papers say Smoot and defensive end Lance Johnstone arranged the charter.

If convicted, each player faces a maximum of 90 days in jail on each count
