Adrian Peterson Arrest Video Shows. . .Not Much

New, comments

Back to the TMZ well we go, as they've put up a video from yesterday's incident. The video really doesn't show a whole heck of a lot, and it's not the "club" video, but rather something that someone took from a smartphone in the club.


Obviously, the footage from the club's cameras themselves would likely tell us a bit more about what happened.

Peterson has a court date in Houston that's set for this Friday, and we'll see if any actual charges are levied then. But, as Ted said last night, I'm pretty much done with the hand-wringing that comes with members of this team getting arrested. Just tell me whether or not they'll be able to play on Sunday and let's move on.

Regardless of what happens in the court or whatever else, the chances of anything affecting Peterson's ability to take the field. . .again, the only thing that matters. . .are very slim. This would be his first violation of the league's Personal Conduct Policy of any sort, and given the fact that he hasn't been a complete jackass during his NFL career, he probably won't be facing any sort of suspension. Maybe a fine, but that might even be a reach.

This will, in all likelihood, turn out to be much ado about nothing.
