NFL Star Turns Himself In
Adrian Peterson, the Minnesota Vikings running back, turned himself in to Texas police and is facing charges of reckless or negligent injury to a child.
He was booked at the Montgomery County jail and was released after he posted bond for $15,000. He then got on a flight from Houston back to Minneapolis.
Peterson, who allegedly spanked his son so hard with a switch the boy suffered injuries all over his body, has been ruled inactive for the Vikings’ game Sunday, but has not been suspended by either the team or the NFL.
NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said Peterson’s case “will be reviewed under the NFL’s personal conduct policy.”…
Peterson’s attorney Russ Hardin said in a statement to ABC News that the star running back is cooperating with police and used his judgment as a parent to discipline his son. [su_csky_ad]
