ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Police say a Vikings fan who was tailgating at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds broke into a police substation after the team’s loss to Seattle, apparently thinking it was his own home.
State Fair police spokeswoman Brooke Blakey says the 30-year-old man appeared to be drunk when he entered the station Sunday.
