Breaking news: Vikings RB Adrian Peterson arrested last night in Houston for resisting arrest by HPD. Bond set at $1,000. #hounews

Peterson is widely regarded as one of the more humble, well behaved players in the NFL, especially in terms of off-the-field issues, so this comes as a surprise. Hopefully the situation arose from nothing serious and Peterson can quickly put this behind him. However, I do think if he was resisting to his fullest ability he probably could have trucked the officers and made them look as helpless as he does opposing defenses.
