MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A grand jury has indicted Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson with reckless or negligent injury to a child, WCCO has confirmed through multiple sources.

Sports Radio 610 in Houston obtained a draft of the police report which says Peterson admitted that he did, in his words, “whoop” one of his children last May while the boy was visiting him in Houston.

When the 4-year-old boy returned to Minnesota, his mother took him to a doctor. The police report said the boy told the doctor Peterson had hit him with a branch from a tree.still

The doctor told investigators that the boy had a number of lacerations on his thighs, along with bruise-like marks on his lower back and buttocks and cuts on his hand.

The police report says the doctor described some of the marks as open wounds and termed it “child abuse.” Another examiner agreed, calling the cuts “extensive.”

Photographs obtained from the Houston police report showed pictures of the injuries.

Another picture showed Peterson demonstrating the kind of switch he used.

When investigators questioned Peterson, they say he told them he regarded it as a normal spanking and not excessive. A grand jury seated earlier this summer decided not to charge him.

The Minnesota Vikings released a statement Friday saying the team is “in the process of gathering information regarding the legal situation involving Adrian Peterson. At this time, we will defer further questions to Adrian’s attorney Rusty Hardin.”

WCCO reached out to Hardin, and he is currently out of the country.

Anonymous said: Is it just completely out of the question that whoever got the ray rice tape just didn't show Roger Goodell?

No its not out of the question, and that wouldn’t have been a big deal IF they said that from the start. 

Instead, the NFL first said they thoroughly investigated the case and that they suspended Ray Rice without anyone from NFL security seeing the tape.. not just Roger Goodell.. Everyone at NFL Security. 

Then when the tape leaked they said they asked law enforcement for the tape and were denied. Law enforcement says that this was incorrect, and they even provided receipts proving that the NFL received it. 

All of this is circumstantial evidence that the NFL saw the tape, then purposely covered it up and denied ever having it to save face.

The fact that they’re lying about it only makes it worse

Mark Schlereth getting choked up talking about the Ray Rice situation. I’m posting this because I thought he did a good job of expressing two stances that often seem to be held by polar opposites. You can be 100% against domestic violence and be 100% supportive of the decision for Ray Rice to be indefinitely suspended from the NFL, but also be caring enough to want him to get help and genuinely want him to learn from this and be a better person than he was before. 

Those two stances aren’t mutually exclusive and you can feel both of them at the same time. There’s not a lot of people really doing that.
