Adrian Peterson Arrested for Resisting Arrest

Early Saturday morning, Vikings star runningback Adrian Peterson was arrested in Texas and charged with resisting arrest. What was he resisting arrest for? Well that we don’t know as of now.

Pro Football Talk had this to say about the incident:

“A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the incident culminating in Peterson’s arrest was captured by one or more surveillance cameras.  Multiple persons also witnessed the event. According to the source, Peterson, his girlfriend, and some family members were at a nightclub in Houston.  At closing time, a group of police officers entered the club, and they began instructing the remaining patrons to leave. Peterson wanted to get some water before he left, but an officer told Peterson that he needed to leave.  Some words apparently were exchanged, but Peterson eventually walked to the exit with one of the club’s bouncers. It’s believed that one of the officers then jumped on Peterson’s back from behind and tried to take him down.  (Key word:  “tried.”)  Other officers then joined the fray and completed the arrest.”


Bob Hagan, director of public relations for the Vikings also released a statement about Peterson’s arrest, “We are aware of the situation and are gathering more information. At this point, we will have no further comment.”

So without much detail about the situation, it seems cloudy and not something you would expect out of Adrian Peterson. Possibly the officer over reacted? maybe it was a misunderstanding? As of now I won’t jump to any conclusions until we get more information on the arrest.
