A Houston Police Department spokesperson said Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson was arrested early Saturday morning for resisting arrest, according to CBS-affiliate KHOU.
Peterson was arrested at 2:30 a.m. Saturday after being at a nightclub in downtown Houston, police say.
Peterson, who is from Palestine, Texas, remains in a Houston jail on a $1,000 bond, according to information on the Houston Police Department website.
Team spokesman Bob Hagan said Saturday that the Vikings are aware of the situation and are gathering more information.

Hope it is not something of an unseemly nature. Always had the impression he was a good guy and good example for the kids. Hopefully it was a stack of unpaid parking tickets.
"That doesn't make any sense..."
If only AP had volunteered to be arrested, he would not have been arrested for resisting arrest.
Yet another reason why I’m not keeping him on my fantasy football keeper team.
It’s a recursive arrest.
Probably tried to run from a drunk in public situation.
TMZ reporting he shoved an off-duty police officer. Obviously a Napolean Bonaparte.
If Obama had a running back...
So now bouncers can make arrests? Plus it sounded like the place was full of other drunks, I mean cops.
Nothing good happens after 2:30 am.
I wonder if the “off duty” cop’s id themselfs as cops???
Uh.....”remains in jail on a 1000 dollar bond”?????? really? REALLY???? 1000 dollars? He doesn’t have 100 bux? That’s....curious. :-/
After 2:30 am is when most of the interesting/entertaining stuff happens.
In its own way, that’s even weirder than the pre-emptive resistance thing.
Nothing good happens at 2:30AM out in the streets.
“Nothing good happens at 2:30AM out in the streets.”-—>True.
“Nothing good happens after 2:30 am.”-—>No no no no NOT true.”
(Why just last night...um...ahh, never mind...)
Like a departed friend of mine used to say,”No matter where you are in the world,day or night,there’s always something to do.Sometimes you have to be pretty sick to do it...”
“the Vikings are aware of the situation and are gathering more information.
And gathering more bail money too.
That is why I put in ‘in the streets’ :>
