UPDATE: According to sources, the following case failed to go anywhere because Adrian did NOT hit the boy in the forehead, but rather the child accidentally hit his head on a carseat while Adrian was discipling him.

Apparently, in accordance with Texas law, sources said the form of discipline was "not impermissible."

According to a report, ​Adrian Peterson is under investigation for yet another child abuse case centered around one of his children.

According to KHOU, this new investigation focuses on an event that that allegedly transpired last June.

Allegedly, Adrian's 4-year old son returned to his mom (a different mother than that of the other alleged victim) with a scar on his forehead, and although Adrian reportedly texted her that his son had hit his head on a car seat, after being questioned further, Adrian allegedly admitted to having hit the child.

This is the alleged transcript in the report of the text messages between Adrian and the child's mother:
