In the middle of an arrest laden offseason for the NFL, one of its biggest stars, Adrian Peterson, was arrested for resisting arrest this weekend. Details on the situation remain murky and it’s unclear if Peterson is actually guilty of any wrongdoing. Reports range from Peterson shoving an officer to Peterson being the victim of police brutality and receiving a black eye after he went to get water as police were closing the club he was in.
Peterson is due in court this Friday and details should be clearer after that, but either way, Peterson, who has no past offenses, will not face league discipline. The major concern with Peterson going forward is his health after tearing his ACL in September. He’s now expected to be able to go week 1 and may even be able to participate in Training Camp, but the Vikings are going to be very cautious with him and may even use Toby Gerhart as the starter early in the year.
