Minnesota Vikings’ Adrian Peterson Indictment in Child Injury Case … Warrant Issued for His Arrest (Update: Peterson Booked on Child Abuse Charge, Posts Bond)
AND ANOTHER BLACK EYE FOR THE NFL …
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has been indicted in Montgomery County, Texas for reckless or negligent injury to a child. The indictment is in regards to Peterson hitting his 4 year old son this past summer with a branch, referred to as a switch, as a form of punishment. Peterson states that this is how he was punished as a child. A grand jury seated earlier this summer decided not to charge Peterson with a crime. However, that was not the case with the new one. According to accounts, the incident resulted in multiple injuries to the child. The boy lives with his mother in Minnesota but was on a visit to Texas several months ago when Peterson disciplined him with the switch. Peterson was taken into custody at 1 a.m. Saturday in Montgomery County, Texas, and was released on $15,000 bond, according to NFL.com. If convicted, Adrian Peterson could face two years in prison.
Adrian Peterson has been deactivated by the Vikings and will not play this Sunday against the New England Patriots.
According to law-enforcement sources, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson beat his 4-year-old son with a tree branch as a form of punishment this summer, an incident that allegedly resulted in multiple injuries to the child. According to reports, Peterson has been indicted in Montgomery County, Texas for injury to a child.
The “whooping” – as Peterson put it when interviewed by police – occurred in Spring, Texas, in May. Peterson’s son had pushed another one of Peterson’s children off of a motorbike video game. As punishment, Peterson grabbed a tree branch – which he consistently referred to as a “switch” – removed the leaves and struck the child repeatedly.
The beating allegedly resulted in numerous injuries to the child, including cuts and bruises to the child’s back, buttocks, ankles, legs and scrotum, along with defensive wounds to the child’s hands. Peterson then texted the boy’s mother, saying that one wound in particular would make her “mad at me about his leg. I got kinda good wit the tail end of the switch.”
Adrian Peterson’s lawyer, Rusty Hardin later released the following statement:
Adrian Peterson has been informed that he was indicted by a grand jury in Montgomery County, Texas for Injury to a Child. The charged conduct involves using a switch to spank his son. This indictment follows Adrian’s full cooperation with authorities who have been looking into this matter. Adrian is a loving father who used his judgment as a parent to discipline his son. He used the same kind of discipline with his child that he experienced as a child growing up in east Texas. Adrian has never hidden from what happened. He has cooperated fully with authorities and voluntarily testified before the grand jury for several hours. Adrian will address the charges with the same respect and responsiveness he has brought to this inquiry from its beginning. It is important to remember that Adrian never intended to harm his son and deeply regrets the unintentional injury.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office released the following statement on Friday evening:
On Thursday, September 11, 2014, a Montgomery County Grand Jury, “true billed”, Adrian Lewis Peterson on a charge of injury to a child. On today’s date at 2:47 PM, a warrant was issued and entered for the arrest of Adrian Peterson for that charge.
Since the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office has referred the case to the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office, and the investigation has led to a, “true bill”, on a criminal offense, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office will not discuss details in reference to the case or investigation.
At the time of this release, Adrian Peterson is not in custody at the Montgomery County Jail and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office does not have any details in the arrest of Adrian Peterson.
Peterson’s team, the Vikings, released the following statement on Friday evening:
The Vikings are in the process of gathering information regarding the legal situation involving Adrian Peterson. At this time, we will defer further questions to Adrian’s attorney Rusty Hardin.
One of the darkest weeks in NFL history took another disturbing twist Friday when a warrant was issued in Texas for the arrest of Adrian Peterson, the face of the Vikings, over his treatment of one of his children.
Peterson faces an indictment accusing him of reckless or negligent injury to a child stemming from Peterson’s decision earlier this year to discipline his 4-year-old son by beating him with a ‘‘switch.’’
The Vikings responded by quickly deactivating Peterson for Sunday’s home opener against New England at TCF Bank Stadium. Peterson will surrender to Houston police, his attorney said.
Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson turned himself in to Montgomery County, Texas, authorities early Saturday morning.
He was booked into the Montgomery County jail at 1:06 a.m. CT and released at 1:35 a.m. CT after posting the $15,000 bond.
Elmendorf, TX Police Chief Michael Pimentel Shot to Death During Traffic Stop … DOUBLE STANDARD: Where’s the MSM Outrage?
WHERE’S THE WALL TO WALL MSM COVERAGE, WHERE’S AL SHARTTON, WHERE’S JESSE JACKSON? WHERE IS THE CALL FROM BARACK OBAMA TO HIS FAMILY?
64 year old Elmendorf, TX Police Chief Michael Pimentel was shot multiple times during a traffic stop on Saturday and later died of his wounds at University Hospital in San Antonio, TX. Police Chief Pimentel was shot by 24 year old Joshua Manuel Lopez, who had an active misdemeanor warrant for graffiti at the time he was pulled over. AND YOU WONDER WHY POLICE OFFICERS REACT THE WAY THEY DO WHEN THEY PULL SOME ONE OVER OR ARE CONFRONTED? Joshua Manuel Lopez had only a misdemeanor warrant for graffiti but yet was armed with a gun and shot and killed a police officer. Joshua Manuel Lopez was arrested and taken into custody. Lopez faces capital murder charges and is being held in the Bexar County Adult Detention Center on a $1 million bond.
Take a good look America as to the dangers that police officers are confronted every day with every possible encounter they have. But the MSM, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, AG Eric Holder and President Barack Obama are more concerned with fanning the flames of racism and race baiting, rather than honoring those police officers who protect and serve. You will only hear from an agenda driven media and opportunists about how police officer Darren Wilson assassinated Michael Brown. God forbid they honor individuals like Police Chief Michael Pimentel who had a long career of protecting and serving. I wonder how many people the White House is sending to Michael Pimentel’s funeral?

CREDIBILITY? Key Witness in Ferguson, MO Michael Brown Shooting … 22 Year Old Dorian Johnson Has a Warrant Out for His Arrest in Jefferson City, MO
THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO HMM …
22 year old Dorian Johnson, the individual who was walking with Michael Brown when he was shot and killed by police officer Darren Wilson,, appears to have a warrant out for his arrest in Jefferson City, MO. Dorian Johnson was arrested for theft and making a false report in 2011. Theft, imagine that … water does seek its own level, doesn’t it? Me thinks some one has a lack of credibility here. Remember, this is the eye witness who said that Michael Brown was shot in the back when the autopsy image reports plainly show that was not the case.
When there’s smoke, there’s fire and when there is one lie to cover up you were doing, there are usually many more to follow.
The warrant is for stealing and dates back to June 2011.
ABC 17 News looked into Johnson’s past and found out he has also been charged with filing a false police report in the same year.
After cross referencing several records, ABC 17 News found the warrant, which is for Dorian Jordan Johnson, is actually the same person as Dorian Jarvis Johnson.
Johnson has told news organizations Brown was, “shot like and animal…”
You might remember, Johnson told reporters Brown was running away with his hands up.

The search of the aquatic gardens area of Kenilworth Park was prompted by evidence the man, identified as Kahlil Malik Tatum, 51, spent time there after the last credible sighting of Relisha Tenau Rudd, 8, on March 1.
“On March 2, we know that Mr. Tatum purchased, among other items, a carton of black, 42 gallon, self-tie contractor trash bags within the District of Columbia,” Lanier said at a news conference near the search area. “Not long after that purchase, Mr. Tatum was in the area of the aquatic gardens for a period of time.”
D.C. police spokesman Hugh Carew said dive teams were searching the Anacostia River in the 700-acre park in Northeast Washington, DC.
The search for missing 8-year-old girl Relisha Rudd resumed Saturday, with dive teams continuing to sift through the waters of Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens for possible remains.

14 Year Old Michaela Bruce Missing Since 2/25/14 in Springfield, OH … Abducted by Mark Edwards for Second Time, Felony Arrest Warrant Issued
14 year old Michaela Bruce has been missing since Tuesday, February 25, 2014 in Springfield, Ohio. According to reports, Michaela Bruce was abducted by 44 year old Mark Edwards for the second time since September 2013. Authorities say Edwards is known to be a survivalist, aka bum, hobo. With his pending trial coming up in March 2014 for the abduction and six counts of unlawful sex with a minor from the September incident where the two ran away, this most likely prompted his incident. The Sheriff’s office believes that Michaela Bruce, and the public could be at risk if the suspect, Mark Edwards, attempts to do something desperate to escape capture. With this being the second abduction of the 14 year old girl, when captured it is not going to end well for this suspect.
She likened her daughter’s relationship with Edwards to being in a “cult.”
“It’s like her little brain has been drilled over and over and over that he loves her. I trusted him. His daughter was my daughter’s best friend. His wife was my friend,” Tammy Bruce said.

UPDATE I: Police receive numerous tips on the two and spotted rental car they were in but cut off pursuit.
Earlier Wednesday night, Fred Stegner, who operates the Springfield Soup Kitchen, 830 W. Main St., told News Center 7 Edwards and Bruce visited the facility sometime before 8 p.m. Tuesday. That would have been roughly an hour before the girl’s mother reported her missing at 9:02 p.m. in German Twp., near Springfield.
Edwards eats at the facility regularly, Stegner said, but Tuesday night was the first time anyone there has seen him with the girl. There were 200 to 250 people there at the time. Springfield police and sheriff’s deputies showed photos of the man and girl to volunteers Wednesday morning.
Edwards “came in with the blond lady,” Stegner said. “I didn’t know she was 14 until I came in today[Wednesday], but many volunteers told me they saw them.”
Also Wednesday evening, sheriff’s Sgt. Mike Young said deputies have continued to receive hundreds of tips, the most credible of which is that Edwards and Bruce may have been near State Route 235 and Interstate 270 late Wednesday morning. Deputies also searched several vacant houses in the area where Edwards and the girl abandoned a rental car he was driving.
Acting on one of the early tips, deputies responded to a Knight’s Inn on West Main Street in Springfield at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday to look for Bruce and Edwards. Items believed to belong to Edwards and Bruce were located in a room. The state bureau of criminal investigation is analyzing items found in that room for DNA, Young said.
Deputies later spotted that rental car and pursued it but cut off that pursuit when the car ran a red light. Authorities found it abandoned at Rebert Pike and Cottage Drive in Springfield. A search of the area did not turn up Edwards or the girl. Officials said Edwards’ wife rented the vehicle Tuesday.

At that time, Edwards and the girl werefound in a green Ford Expedition in the 3300 block of Ohio 41. She was hiding in the rear of the vehicle under blankets. Deputies found a Taser, knives, condoms, a spear and other items in the SUV. Officials have said Edwards is known to be a survivalist.

This further emphasizes the point, nothing good comes from renting a J-Lo movie …
27 year old Kayla Michelle Finley arrested and charged with not returning a video tape that she rented in 2005. Making matters worse, the rental video store, Dalton Video, isn’t even in business anymore. Wait, imagine being arrested for not returning a J-Lo film, Monster-in-Law? How does one get arrested for something like this? How much could the tape or fine actually be worth? My we have come a long way in America, pot legal, but you can be arrested for not returning a video. Thankfully, technology has changed in how movies are rented these days. Finley was arrested, and spent Thursday night in jail until her bond hearing Friday morning. A judge issued a $2,000 personal recognizance bond Friday morning, and she was released. Who thinks this is a tad bit extreme and a waste of law enforcements time and money?
Public Enemy #1 – Kayla Michelle Finley
Kayla Michelle Finley, 27, has been charged with failure to return a rented video cassette, according to the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office.
According to warrants Finely rented Monster-In-Law from Dalton Video, which is no longer in business, in 2005 and the tape was not returned within 72 hours.
Finley was sent letters to return the video several times but never responded, according to the warrant. It also said a certified warrant was sent to the woman on Sept. 12, 2005.
