Charges against Adrian Peterson stemming from an incident in a Houston bar have been dropped. Peterson in the middle of a MVP season learned that Houston police would be not pressing charges due to lack of evidence. The mild mannered Peterson was involved in an argument with a bartender when an off duty officer intervened, that’s when the fun starts.
The officer took it upon himself to take down Peterson, something no one has been able to do this season. Peterson gave the nice officer a ride before being subdued. He was detained for resisting arrest. He was accused of shoving a police officer but has always maintained he did nothing of the sort.
Peterson hasn’t had any trouble with the law during his NFL career and this came as quite a shock to most. “They dropped the charges,” “Thank God.” Peterson told Josina Anderson of ESPN.
