Report: Peterson facing re-arrest for drug violation

Conroe, TX ( – Prosecutors in Montgomery County, Texas have
filed paperwork to have Adrian Peterson’s bail revoked and re-arrest him after
the Minnesota running back admitted to smoking marijuana in violation of his
bond conditions, according to a report by Houston’s FOX 26 News.

According to court records, Peterson told a staffer that he had “smoked a
little weed” before taking a drug test.

Peterson has been free on $15,000 bond following a charge of felony child
abuse of one of his sons, with a trial tentatively set to begin on Dec. 1.

Fox 26 also stated that there likely won’t be any action taken against
Peterson Thursday, as the current judge in the case is scheduled for a recusal
hearing on Friday.

Peterson, the 2012 NFL MVP, remains on the exempt list and away from the
Vikings due to his current legal problems. He has not played in any of the
team’s past four games.
