Agent: Dalvin Cook was victim of domestic assault, extortion

A woman allegedly assaulted Vikings running back Dalvin Cook in his east metro home last year and tried to extort him, his agent, Zac Hiller, said.

Hiller told Twin Cities affiliate KSTP that a woman, who is a sergeant in the U.S. military, broke into Cook’s home and attacked him roughly a year ago. She then allegedly tried to extort him for millions of dollars, claiming Cook had injured her in the attack she initiated.

However, because the sergeant broke into Cook’s home, Hiller said, Cook had the right to defend himself under Minnesota’s Castle Doctrine.

Litigation has not started, and no criminal complaints have been filed as of yet, Hiller said.
