Report: Adrian Peterson Involved In Second Abuse Allegation

This just keeps getting worse.

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

KHOU, a television station in Houston, Texas, is reporting that Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was involved in another child abuse incident last June.

This allegation is allegedly against another son, but not his son involved in the first allegation. However, this child is also four years old. In the story, it says no charges were filed, but the mother reported the incident to Child Protective Services.

On Friday, Peterson was indicted for reckless or negligent injury to a child and was deactivated for the Vikings game against New England. Early Saturday morning, Peterson turned himself in, was booked and then released from jail shortly afterwards.

Earlier today, the Minnesota Vikings reinstated Peterson, and Peterson also released a statement about what happened over the weekend. Vikings GM Rick Spielman held a press conference to discuss the original allegations and reinstatement, and that was generally considered to be a fairly disastrous affair.

At the time of this posting, the neither the Vikings or Peterson have made a statement regarding this new, potential allegation.
