Police learned from Vikings player development director Les Pico that Griffen "has been really struggling for the past few weeks", the police reports read. ESPN reported that though the name on the report is redacted, Griffen is the individual in question.
After the Vikings requested a welfare check by Minnetrista police Saturday, Griffen was taken to a hospital and placed on a health and welfare hold, the end of a long day that started with Griffen being turned away from practice.
Prior to this weekend, Griffen had been "explosive, screaming and yelling" at the team facility to the point where he was ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation by the team. A source told Anderson that Griffin is "getting assistance on personal matters" and that the National Football League is "comfortable he has a good support system around him". According to a police report, Vikings staff were concerned for him and thought he might be having a "nervous breakdown".
After being told to leave practice, Griffen went to the Hotel Ivy, where he had been staying during the week after leaving his home.
The Minnesota Police Department said Griffen allegedly created a scene nearly every time he entered the hotel. He told police that "Everson was acting insane and he was risky", according to a report filed Saturday by Minnetrista police officer Justin Thompson. "We know he's strong and he's going to push through it, and we just want him to know that we've got his back". "We are friends with the Griffen family and we are here to support them in any way possible during these trying times", he said.

The police incident report notes that no criminal charges are forthcoming. Griffen also jumped out of the ambulance, saying he was in fear of someone shooting him, before ultimately being calmed and taken to the hospital.
Sources told Anderson that a number of Vikings players and coaches were not aware of Saturday's incident, even at game time on Sunday.
In a statement Monday evening, Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman said the team is "currently focused on Everson's well-being and providing the appropriate support for him and his family".
"Obviously, he's been a really good model for us, and he's going through a tough time right now", Zimmer said.
"The only thing that we're concerned about for Everson isn't anything do with football, it's about him getting better", Zimmer reflected. Unable to return to Minnesota in time for the birth, Griffen watched via FaceTime from his phone before recording two sacks in that game.
