Keith Millard, a defensive tackle for the Minnesota Vikings, crashed his car into a planter at a fast-food restaurant and ran back to his training camp dormitory to beat the team’s 11 p.m. curfew, police said in Mankato, Minn.
The accident occurred a few minutes before 11 and Millard fled to his room two blocks away before police arrived at the crash scene, police said. Officers identified Millard through a check on the car’s license plate and interviewed him at his dormitory about 11:15 p.m., police said.
Millard told the officers he would have been fined $1,500 for missing curfew. Millard could not be reached for comment.
Police said that Millard, who was alone, was not injured and was not ticketed.
