Adrian Peterson Booked and Released From Montgomery County Jail


Adrian Peterson turned himself in at a Montgomery County jail early this morning after a warrant was issued for his arrest. The Minnesota Vikings running back was booked on a charge of injury to a child and released after posting $15,000 bond.

No further details were released.

Peterson was deactivated by the Minnesota Vikings for Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots.

Multiple reports and pictures detailing the injuries suffered by Peterson’s son emerged last night.

Peterson’s attorney, Rusty Hardin, released the following statement:

"“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.”"
