Chris Cook Takes The Stand, Decision Coming Soon

Vikings cornerback Chris Cook is facing felony charges stemming from an incident involving his girlfriend in 2011.

Today, the defense strategy was to claim he was acting in self defense, and Cook himself spent 96 minutes on the witness stand in an effort to convince the jury of exactly that.

“No. I…no,” Cook replied when asked if he thought before striking the woman. “I was reacting. I wasn’t thinking. I was reacting to pain.”

The attorney’s will make their final arguments Wednesday morning, and then the jury will deliberate.  A decision could be coming very soon, and his future with the Vikings could very well hinge on that decision.
