Henderson was arrested Wednesday in Chanhassen, Minn., on suspicion of DWI. According to jail records, Henderson was booked into the Carver County Jail at 3:03 p.m. for fourth-degree DWI, third-degree DWI, second-degree DWI test refusal and violating the conditions of a limited driver's license, WCCO-TV in Minneapolis reported.
Henderson sued the state of Minnesota in late November 2013 after being arrested for probable cause of driving while intoxicated and possession of a controlled substance. He filed a lawsuit, stating the police didn't have probable cause to stop him.
In another incident, according to the Minnesota State Patrol, Henderson was stopped on Aug. 31, 2013 after troopers noticed him weaving. He was warned and released.
