King released from Vikings and jail
King was also released from jail Tuesday with no charges filed after his arrest in an alleged beating outside a birthday party last weekend.
Anoka County prosecutors' spokesman David Cossi said King was released Tuesday and the case remains under investigation.
Sheriff's officials say King was accused of punching a 22-year-old man and throwing him headfirst to the ground early Saturday. The alleged altercation began after the man allegedly teased the 24-year-old King about his resemblance to an unspecified celebrity.
Authorities say King denied assaulting the man and told detectives the man fell to the ground when King was talking to him.
King, a highly touted recruit from Georgia, signed with the Vikings as a rookie free agent last year but didn't play in a game.
