Adrian Peterson was arrested early Saturday morning for getting into an altercation of some sort with an off-duty police officer.
Initial reports noted that his arrest was for resisting arrest – which was odd because, obviously, you need to be arrested for something before you can resist that arrest.
Later reports indicated that, apparently, Peterson ignored the officer’s orders to leave a nightclub. At some point shortly after the officer’s request, things reportedly got physical. The details from that point forward are murky; when it was all said and done, though, Peterson wound up in bracelets.
On Sunday, TMZ released this blurry video of the arrest:
To this point, Peterson hasn’t said much about what happened. His response to everything that transpired and the subsequent media coverage has been limited to this:
“A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.”WC— Adrian Peterson (@AdrianPeterson) July 8, 2012
