Minnesota Vikings superstar running back Adrian Peterson has been indicted for child abuse in North Montgomery County, Texas, the media reports.
Sources said the alleged victim is a male child from Minnesota who was visiting Adrian back in May at his Texas home.
When the child returned home to Minnesota, adults noticed injuries and took the child to a doctor. A short time later, the doctor contacted authorities in Texas to report Peterson. 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 for reckless or negligent injury to a child, this according to Fox 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!”
