3 Cops Arrest Resisting NFL Star
July 09, 2012
Three off-duty Houston Police officers arrested Minnesota Vikings' running back Adrian Peterson at a nightclub Saturday after the NFL star scuffled with them.
Peterson was arrested after an off-duty officer twice asked him to leave the club and he pushed the officer. He also yelled at the officer and "assumed an aggressive stance," reports CBS News.
Peterson rushed for 970 yards and 12 touchdowns last year.

He may be a great football player but as a human being he's an A**hole. You have it all except brains, nice example you have set for kids who think it cool to be you.

Peterson's attorney now says that he is an angel. There never was a scuffle, and he never resisted arrest. The officers over-reacted to the meek and mild Peterson. Bull Crap...!
