By now, most of you have heard that the Minnesota Vikings Adrian Peterson was taken into custody by Houston police over the weekend for resisting arrest. This incident happened at a nightclub where the star running back allegedly asked for a drink of water (what?) after police showed up at the bar to close it down for the night. Cops say Peterson exchanged words with an off-duty officer (who probably thinks water isn’t a manly enough drink and was probably dehydrated himself at the time) working security and next thing you know AD is “resisting arrest.”
Something smells fishing about this all the way around, so we’ll wait until more information comes out to comment, but below is the only known video of Peterson’s arrest. Thanks to TMZ for the video!
Well, there’s something you don’t see everyday. If we didn’t know better, we would say that #61 is enjoying the fact that whiny, red-headed fan is being arrested for running onto the field following the University of Texas at San Antonio’s 31-3 win over the Oklahoma’s Northeastern State Riverhawks.
You can sorta understand the UTSA fan’s enthusiasm: it was their first college football game EVER and was a big win. Yet, fans were warned to stay off the field and at least six of those who did–like this guy–found themselves in handcuffs. (Details here.)

Details have been scarce on the arrest of Texas wide receive Christian “The Check’s in the Mail” Scott, but now we know it wasn’t your run-of-the-mill college bar brawl.
According to police, Scott allegedly assaulted a woman who was trying to repossess his 2000 Cadillac . . . for the second time. Before the repo lady could make her getaway, Scott showed up in another vehicle, blocked her exit and then beat on the Caddy until she exited, at which time–allegedly–he threw her to the ground in the asphalt parking lot.
Not surprisingly, Scott has been suspended indefinitely from the team by head coach Mack Brown .
