Re: NFL Offseason Thread (stuff that doesn't deserve own thread)
Adrian Peterson's arrest apparently was completely caught on tape.
Profootballtalk.com reports that Adrian Peterson's arrest for resisting arrest in Houston was caught "all on video," and the details may not bode particularly well for the Houston Police Department.
A source with knowledge of the situation told PFT that the arrest was captured by "one or more surveillance cameras," with "multiple" witnesses. Peterson's girlfriend and some family members were reportedly at a Houston nightclub. At closing time, policemen entered the club and instructed everyone to leave. Peterson wanted to get some water, but an officer told him no and Peterson went for the exit. "Itís believed that one of the officers then jumped on Petersonís back from behind and tried to take him down," explained Florio's source. Other officers then joined in. The fact that Peterson was only charged with resisting arrest is awfully bizarre. Expect more details to emerge this weekend.
