MyFoxHouston is reporting that Minnesota star running back Adrian Peterson has been indicted for reckless or negligent injury to a child in Montgomery County, TX.
The Patriots are scheduled to play Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
Ian Rappaport of NFL.com has reported that the charge is related to the use of a switch on his son.
Sources connected to Peterson tell us … the alleged victim is a male child from Minnesota who was visiting Adrian back in May at AP’s home in Texas.
We’re told the child returned home to his mother in Minn. who noticed injuries and took the child to a doctor. A short time later, the doctor contacted authorities in Texas to report Adrian.
Child Protective Services confirms they are working on a case involving Peterson and say the alleged victim is an 11-year-old boy.
Peterson was indicted in Montgomery County for reckless or negligent injury to a child, this according to MyFOX Houston 26.
Peterson missed Vikings team practice yesterday — though the team explained it as a “veteran’s day.” Peterson did attend practice today and was said to be laughing and joking on the field.
Earlier today, Peterson posted a message on Twitter — though it’s unclear if it’s related to the case.
“People understand that if you are on God’s course and suppose to have that position and man decides to remove you know that God will remove everyone to place you rightfully! You matter!”
“Its your season! Weapons may form but won’t prosper! God has you covered don’t stress or worry!”
