Whoa! What happened here?!
Adrian Peterson was reportedly arrested Thursday morning at a Houston nightclub, and upon being booked, was charged with resisting arrest!
According to sources at the scene, the NFL star, who is currently recovering from a torn ligament in his knee, was heavily intoxicated at Live at Bayou Place, which sources close to him maintain is extremely out of character.
Apparently, Peterson was loudly making a scene, and attempted to order one last drink upon closing time, and when the bartender refused, the football player "tried to intimidate the bartender!" Eventually, this caught the attention of an off-duty police officer, who attempted to intervene, but was met with hostility!
A witness explains:
"He looked really scary and I thought he was gonna attack the cops."
Well, that explains the 'resisting arrest' part!
He has since posted the $1,000 bail, and even apologized to the authorities and explained that he doesn't usually drink!
Meanwhile, a rep for the Minnesota Vikings says:
"We are aware of the situation and are gathering more information. At this point, we will have no further comment."
We know recovering from injuries can be difficult, but in case this hasn't forced you to realize it: lay off the sauce, buddy!
