A handgun discovered in a car rented by Vikings quarterback Daunte Culpepper on Thursday afternoon was registered and belonged to running back Michael Bennett, according to reports by KSTP (Ch. 5) and KMSP (Ch. 9).
KSTP reported Bennett and Culpepper had planned to go to a shooting range after the final day of this week's developmental camp at Winter Park. The two, however, changed their plans, and Culpepper dropped off the car at Hertz before heading home to Orlando, Fla. Bennett left the gun between the seats under a newspaper, where it was found by an employee who called the airport police.
Bennett appeared with his permit to carry a handgun after explaining what had happened on the phone, according to KMSP. The gun was returned to Bennett, and airport police determined they did not believe any laws were violated.
"The gun is legal; it's registered and everything," Bennett told KSTP. "I don't even know how everything got out. I was just questioned. ... It happened and I'm sorry for it. It will never happen again, I guarantee that."
With Onterrio Smith having been suspended by the NFL for the 2005 season for violating the league's substance abuse policy a third time, Bennett is the clear-cut favorite to be the Vikings' top running back.
