When Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was in the middle of rehabbing his knee during the offseason, he found himself in a bit of trouble while hanging out in Houston, and he was arrested on a charge of resisting arrest.
According to police, he was asked to leave a club, and he refused to do so while pushing an off-duty Houston officer. He eventually was arrested by three officers.
Four months later, we have news on the progress of the case against Peterson, via ESPN's Josina Anderson:
Just got this text from Vikings RB Adrian Peterson:"They dropped the charges. Thank God."— Josina Anderson (@JosinaAnderson) November 13, 2012
NFL.com confirmed through attorney Rusty Hardin's office that Peterson was talking about the resisting-arrest charge.
Peterson leads the league with 1,128 rushing yards.
