Adrian Peterson Accused of Abusing a Second Child

UPDATE: Adrian Peterson’s lawyer Rusty Hardin released this statement:

“The allegation of another investigation into Adrian Peterson is simply not true. This is not a new allegation, it’s one that is unsubstantiated and was shopped around to authorities in two states over a year ago and nothing came of it. An adult witness adamantly insists Adrian did nothing inappropriate with his son. There is no ongoing or new investigation.”

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has been accused of abusing a second child according to KHOU TV in Houston, TX.

He was indicted for charges of reckless or negligent injury to a child Friday after pictures were leaked showing bruises on his 4-year-old son’s legs.

The Vikings deactivated him, in which he didn’t play in Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots. However, there are also pictures of this incident, as another 4-year-old son of his was shown with a Band-Aid across his head.

There were text messages exchanged between Peterson and the child’s mother — of the second child — that goes as follows:

Mother: “What happened to his head?”

Peterson: “Hit his head on the Carseat.”

Mother: “How does that happen, he got a whoopin in the car.”

Peterson: “Yep.”

Mother: “Why?”

Peterson: “I felt so bad. But he did it his self.”

The report states that Peterson went on to say that he was disciplining his son for cussing at a sibling. The mother then replied:

Mother “What did you hit him with?”

Peterson didn’t respond.

Peterson was reinstated Monday by the Vikings, and for now is expected to play Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.

He is facing a maximum of two years in prison and a fine of $10,000 if found guilty. Peterson is expected to enter a plea hearing on Oct. 8 in Conroe, TX.

This news is very disappointing. And even though charges were never filed, the fact that there’s evidence — for the second time – the legal consequences that Peterson is facing could become even steeper.
