NOM Peterson

 

NFL Minnesota Viking running back Adrian Peterson has been indicted by a grand jury on child abuse charges related to physically injuring his 4-year old son . Peterson you may remember became a poster boy for the anti-gay organization the National Organization for Marriage after he made comments in an interview with Sirius/XM NFL radio about same-sex marriage saying “I’m not with that. That’s not something I believe in.”

An arrest warrant has been issued for Peterson who practiced with the Vikings earlier on Friday.

The team issued a brief statement following the early reports of Peterson’s indictment:

The Vikings are in the process of gathering information regarding the legal situation involving Adrian Peterson. At this time, we will defer further questions to Adrian’s attorney Rusty Hardin.

second statement was later issued, announcing that Peterson would be inactive for the team’s second game of the 2014 season:

The Vikings have deactivated Adrian Peterson for this Sunday’s game against the Patriots.

And exactly as happened in the Ray Rice case, his supporters are already attempting to diminish his actions.
