Peterson’s father wasn’t there, so he is only getting Adrian’s side which we know is that he was harassed and unfairly treated by the Houston PD.

On the flip side we have the Club Manager and the cops saying that it was Peterson who is the only one to be blamed for him being arrested.

Still waiting for clearer video of the argument. Here is what AP’s dad had to say.

The off-duty police officer who confronted Adrian Peterson used “vulgar language” and was “disrespectful” when asking the Minnesota Vikings running back to leave the club in downtown Houston over the weekend, Peterson’s father, Nelson, told the Pioneer Press.

“From what I’ve gathered, he was very disrespectful to Adrian,” Nelson said by phone Monday, July 9.

Nelson, who did not witness the incident, remains very close with Peterson and talks to him regularly.

Peterson received a black eye when his face hit the ground while he was being detained, Nelson said.

“The officer said he pushed him, shoved him, then why is he not charged with assault?” Nelson said. “Only charged with resisting arrest. Doesn’t make sense.”

The last point is a valid one. Normally, if you put your hands on a police officer that is an automatic assault charge. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle, but we will continue to give you all the information as it comes in.

    Why wouldn’t Adrian’s father “remain close” with HIS son and “talk with him regulalry?” People in the media are fucken idiots! If he was white, his relationship with his father would NOT have beem mentioned!
