Culpepper Cleared In Vikings Boat Scandal

Minnesota Vikings Quarterback Daunte Culpepper has been cleared of misdemeanor charges stemming from the Minnesota Vikings boat party sex scandal. A judge ruled there isn't probable cause to determine that a crime was committed by Culpepper, one of four players accused of lewd conduct during the cruise last fall on Lake Minnetonka. Culpepper has since been traded to the Miami Dolphins. The judge denied a motion to dismiss charges against running back Moe Williams. Culpepper's attorney says the ruling vindicates him of any sexual misconduct. Williams' attorney says he's disappointed. His trial is scheduled for April 18th. The other two players charged -- cornerback Fred Smoot and tackle Bryant McKinnie -- aren't part of today's ruling. Their next hearings are scheduled for Thursday
