Peterson Says He Did Not Push or Shove During Arrest

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson stopped only briefly to address reporters when leaving a Houston courtroom Friday morning. But in wrapping up his remarks, the Vikings running back offered a four-word statement that summarizes his defense, Dan Wiederer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

“I didn’t touch anyone,” he said.

Peterson was appearing in court for an arraignment following his arrest last weekend inside a Houston nightclub where, police allege, he pushed an off-duty officer and later resisted arrest. Now Peterson’s case has been reset for Aug. 6.

“I didn’t push, shove, touch anything to anyone that night, especially an officer,” Peterson told reporters Friday, flanked by his attorney Rusty Hardin. “I definitely don’t have a problem with the Houston P.D. This involves two individual officers that I have an issue with. Once everything is settled and [comes] to a head, the truth will come out.”
