Adrian Peterson Avoids Jail Time After Striking Up A Plea Deal In Child Abuse Scandal

Filed under: Icky Icky PooZportzLegal MattersViolenceFootballNFL

Adrian Peterson will not face any jail time for his child abuse scandal.

It looks like NFL running back Adrian Peterson will NOT have to worry about spending any time behind bars as he has struck up a plea agreement that will allow him to avoid jail completely.

The Minnesota Viking was originally indicted on felony charges of injuring a child after he used wooden "switch," or stick, to hit his 4-year-old son as a form of discipline, leaving him with cuts and bruises on his legs, buttocks, and testicles.

Despite some speculation that he might face possible jail time, Adrian and his legal team managed to put together a deal in which he pleaded no contest to much lesser misdemeanor charge of reckless assault.

Filed under: ZportzLegal MattersViolenceFootballNFL

baltimore ravens knew intimate details of ray rice video within hours of when it happened

Someone's got some 'splainin' to do!

Although the Baltimore Ravens told the world that they had only seen the video that they ended up releasing their running back Ray Rice over, who was then subsequently suspended from the NFL, when it was released and the public first saw it.

However although they didn't see the video, which featured Rice knocking his then-fiancée out inside an elevator at the Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey, new reports are that the team's head of security was given a FULL detailed account by a police officer only hours after it happened.

One source even called the account made to Darren Sanders basically a "play-by-play."

Sanders quickly shared what he had just learned with some of the other team executives although exactly who was made aware is unknown at this point.

Another point mentioned in the ESPN report was

UPDATE! Arizona Cardinals Running Back Jonathan Dwyer Suspected Of Allegedly Assaulting His Wife On TWO Separate Occasions

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersViolenceFootball

arizona cardinals jonathan dwyer two separate incident

We reported earlier how Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer had been arrested for domestic violence.

it had been initially reported that he had been charged with aggravated assault, and preventing someone from calling 911.

But it looks like this story somehow is even worse than we first thought.

Now, it's come out that he's suspected of assaulting his wife on not one, but two different occasions.

On top of that, he's been accused off allegedly breaking some bones.

According to law enforcement, the football player allegedly beat his wife in their Phoenix home on July 21st AND July 22nd. Just awful.

In addition, cops say that his wife and their 18-month old child, both listed as victims by authorities, left the state after these two altercations.

This is atrocious. An 18-month old should never be a victim of ANYTHING.

After an investigation, Jonathan is now being charged with 1 count of aggravate assault causing a fracture, 1 count aggravated assault involving a minor, 2 counts of criminal damage, 1 count of preventing the use of a phone in an emergency, and assault.

This is just horrible.

The star Minnesota Vikings running back is believed to have struck and injured his 11-year-old son with a "switch" and the running back's lawyer released a statement that it was an "unintentional" injury.

Filed under: ZportzFoodFootballNFL

marshawn lynch gets jersey made of skittles 1

We've seen our fair share of strange and ugly jerseys this past week, but this one DEFINITELY takes the cake!!

In case you didn't already know, Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has a HUGE sweet tooth that stems from his childhood when his mother used to give him Skittles before every football game!

The physical footballer has basically become synonymous with the sweet treat and it has become tradition for fans to shower him with the fruity candy every time he gets a touchdown!!

Now Skittles is returning some of the love presented Marshawn with a jersey made of– you guessed it– SKITTLES!!

OK, so the jersey itself is just a regular jersey. But the number 24 on it is all made of sugary goodness! Talk about an awesome gift! Let's just hope Marshawn doesn't eat it!!
