Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson Arrested in Houston Nightclub Incident … Charged With Resisting Arrest
Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson was charged with resisting arrest after an early morning altercation at a downtown Houston, TX nightclub. According to accounts, an off-duty Houston police officer working security asked Peterson and a group of people he was with to leave because it was closed. The scuffle occurred after that. Peterson was released from jail Saturday on a $1,000 bond and charged with a misdemeanor.
Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson was arrested on a charge of resisting arrest after an early morning incident where police say it took three officers to subdue him.
Houston Police Department spokesperson Kese Smith said Peterson was at a downtown nightclub early Saturday morning when an off-duty Houston police officer working security asked Peterson and a group of people he was with to leave because it was closed. The man, who Kese said identified himself as a police officer, left to tell other patrons to leave the club before returning to Peterson’s group to again tell them to leave.
Wow, ESPN is quick to defend the actions and make some excuses of Adrian Peterson and say this is not the person we know. Really guys, do you usually hang with Peterson and his posse partying in downtown Houston in the wee hours of the morning?
When will these players ever learn. Nothing good ever comes to athletes who are out in the early morning hours at nightclubs, just ask Pacman Jones and Plaxico Burress.

“…was arrested for resisting arrest…”
Doesn’t make any sense unless he was first arrested for no reason at all. I think in this context you mean “incarcerated for resisting arrest”. The sentence you use is just kind of vague and sloppy and doesn’t tell us much. What was he initially arrested for that led to the charge of resisting arrest?
