Minnesota Vikings linebacker Erin Henderson isn't starting the New Year off too well -- he was just arrested for his second DWI in two months ... after allegedly plowing his car through a bunch of trees.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports, Henderson was popped on New Year's Day near Eden Prairie, MN after police received a call about a single-vehicle crash.
According to law enforcement, Henderson had been driving erratically and speeding when he lost control of his black SUV, skidded over the centerline through a grassy area, through a parking lot, before colliding with several trees. The front and sides of the vehicle were heavily damaged, but Henderson was not injured.
When police showed up on the scene, we're told officers suspected he was under the influence (Erin's breath allegedly smelled like booze and his eyes were blood shot). Police then administered a field sobriety test, which Henderson bombed.
According to the booking report, Henderson was placed under arrest and booked on 4 charges, including DWI. He has just been released on $12,000 bail.
Henderson was previously arrested on suspicion of DWI in November in the same area.
The Vikings have released a statement about the most recent arrest, saying, "We are aware of the matter involving Erin Henderson. We are continuing to gather information and will have further comment at the appropriate time."
