Former Sooners Star Peterson Arrested
Former Oklahoma Sooners running back Adrian Peterson was arrested in Houston early Saturday morning and charged with resisting arrest.
According to Houston Police spokesperson Kese Smith, Peterson was at a downtown nightclub when a security officer told him to leave because the club was closing. Smith said after the security officer, who identified himself as an off-duty police officer, returned to tell him to leave again, Peterson told the officer he heard him the first time and pushed him.
Smith went on to say the officer then told Peterson he was under arrest and to put his hands behind his back. Peterson responded by yelling and assuming an "aggressive stance." Police say it eventually took three officers to subdue him.
The Minnesota Vikings star was released from jail Saturday on a $1,000 bond. The charge is a misdemeanor.
Peterson is a four-time NFL Pro Bowl selection and holds the number three spot on OU's all-time rushing list.
