Adrian Peterson arrested in Houston
 
NFL star Adrian Peterson was arrested early Thursday morning in Houston, TX and charged with resisting arrest ... TMZ has learned.

Peterson, who is recovering from a torn knee ligament suffered on Christmas Eve of last year, was booked into Houston Police Department Central Jail and posted $1,000 this morning.

On the jail's website, Peterson's charge is listed as "RESIST ARREST/SEARCH-UNCLASSIF."

Arrested for resisting arrest? ...

"You are under arrest!" .. "Why? .. what did I do?" .. "Are you resisting?" .. "Yes" .. "OK, I am arresting you for that then".

Weird to have an resisting arrest charge with no accompanying charge.

Anyway this doesn't sound good - for HPD at this point. Obviously more facts may come out including the video.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the incident culminating in Peterson’s arrest was captured by one or more surveillance cameras. Multiple persons also witnessed the event.

According to the source, Peterson, his girlfriend, and some family members were at a nightclub in Houston. At closing time, a group of police officers entered the club, and they began instructing the remaining patrons to leave.

Peterson wanted to get some water before he left, but an officer told Peterson that he needed to leave. Some words apparently were exchanged, but Peterson eventually walked to the exit with one of the club’s bouncers.

It’s believed that one of the officers then jumped on Peterson’s back from behind and tried to take him down. (Key word: “tried.”) Other officers then joined the fray and completed the arrest.

One of the members of this forum, I'm pretty sure, is a police officer. Hopefully he can clear this up for us.

Sounds par for the course, since cops think they are God.

How dare you want to get some water before you leave?

Fact is the club owner can allow you to stay as long as you want, and consume whatever you want, just cant "sell" you anymore alcohol. Unless the owner of the establishment had a problem with him, I dont see what right the cops had to do anything.

Guess we will wait until all the facts come out, but HPD is becoming as embarrassing for Houston as the LAPD are for Los Angeles. Organized ignorance ...

Club Says He Was WASTED

Adrian Peterson was heavily intoxicated at the time of his arrest, which was very out of character for the NFL star ... this according to the club where he was busted early this morning.

Daniel Maher, general manager of Live at Bayou Place, tells TMZ that Peterson has been to the club before, but he has never known him to drink much. Last night, however, Maher said Peterson was ver drunk and was a difficult customer all night.

Maher says Peterson was throwing his ego around and making people mad, so they put him in the VIP area. Maher says when the club was closing, he rushed over to the bar to try and order one last drink and when he wouldn't Maher says Peterson "tried to intimidate the bartender" into selling it to him.

According to Maher, that's when he intervened, but Peterson continued to be "unreasonable." That's when Maher says the off-duty cop intervened, and, as TMZ first reported, Peterson proceeded to shove him.

Maher says during his confrontation with the officer, Peterson assumed a fight stance and looked "like he meant business." Maher says, "He looked really scary and I thought he was gonna attack the cops."

Maher says that once the officers subdued Peterson, the NFL star apologized for his behavior and told cops he doesn't usually drink.

Peterson was eventually booked into jail and charged with resisting arrest.

Calls to Peterson's rep were not returned.

Thankfully for my keeper league no CHL owners intervened and allowed the pros to do their job.

If he is off-duty, why is he sticking his nose into something, and how is he arresting anyone?

This is not unusual in Harris County it happens every day. Its just not everyone has the money to expose the error like NFL players do.

After being arrested in Houston early Saturday, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson complained of shortness of breath when he arrived at the Houston city jail.

Kese Smith, a spokesman for the Houston police department, said Peterson was "examined by Houston fire department medical personnel," who, "pronounced him to be medically fine."

Here's the rest of the report from Peterson's arrest as relayed by Smith:

"This happened at a club in downtown Houston called the Bayou Live Nightclub.

"It began just after 2 a.m. this morning when a Houston police officer working an approved extra job as security began the process of clearing the bar of patrons. The bar had just closed.

"While doing so he approached Adrian Peterson, who was with a group of people next to the bar.

"Peterson was talking with that group of people next to the bar and the officer informed Peterson and the group that the bar was closed and asked them to walk toward the nearest exit.

"The officer left the group to continue advising other patrons the bar was closed. A short time later, the officer returned and found Peterson and the group still talking at the bar. The officer again asked everyone to leave the bar, reminding them that it was closed.

"As the officer turned away to remind other patrons of this, Peterson told the officer that the group had heard him the first time and pushed the officer in the shoulder causing him to stumble.

"The officer then informed Peterson he was under arrest and asked him to turn around and place his hands behind his back. Peterson instead began yelling at the officer who again told him to place his hands behind his back.

"As the officer attempted to place Peterson in handcuffs, Peterson pulled away from the officer and assumed a violent stance. At this time an HPD sergeant, who was also working an approved extra job, saw what was happening and attempted to assist in arresting Peterson.

"Peterson began struggling with both officers. During this entire time, that initial officer was giving verbal commands to Peterson to stop resisting and place his hands behind his back.

"Peterson ignored those verbal commands and continued to struggle with the officers and ultimately a third officer had to assist in detaining Peterson.

"Once placed in handcuffs, Peterson was transported to the Houston Police city jail where he complained of shortness of breath. He was examined by Houston fire department medical personnel who pronounced him to be medically fine.

"He was then booked into the jail and is charged with resisting arrest, which is a misdemeanor."

Adrian Peterson, apparently a bit intoxicated, put his hands on an officer. BIG mistake.

He was given multiple chances, from what I've been reading. And the officers involved, from what the stories report, appear to have been working APPROVED shifts at the location. Probably because people like Adrian Peterson get drunk and can't turn off the bravado switch.

Glad nobody was hurt. If AP doesn't drink much, as he admitted, maybe he will evaluate this situation and consider not drinking at all.

It's not the good kind of clarity, though. The details really do make Peterson out to be the bad guy. ESPN Twin Cities has the report, which in a nutshell has Peterson talking back to an officer who was working security, and then shoving said officer which led to his arrest.

According to the report, the incident happened just after 2:00 a.m. when the Bayou Live Nightclub was closing and the security guards (who are police officers) were rounding up the patrons and telling them to go him. They reportedly told Peterson and his group that they needed to leave and make their way towards an exit, and then went on their business telling the rest. Eventually, they came back to Peterson, who was still standing and talking with his group, and asked him again.

Peterson than reportedly gave the officer the "I heard you the first time," line and then pushed the officer, causing him to stumble. At that point, the officer tried to arrest him, was failing in doing so, and the other officer assisted and hauled Peterson off the jail. There, Peterson complained of shortness of breath, was pronounced medically fine and was formally charged with resisting arrest, a misdemeanor.

Kind of refreshing the find an "inexperienced" 27 year old drinker.

I'm sure AP is suitably embarrassed by his behavior & will make amends.

So...... an off duty police officer can arrest your for resisting arrest? That don't sound right.

& I'm asking, because I'm probably going to need to know one day. If I hit an off-duty police officer, say working as a bouncer, would I be arrested for assaulting an officer?

An off duty cop can arrest you 24/7 for anything you illegally do that he/she observes.

As for the 'assaulting a police officer' when off duty, and I presume you mean no uniform nor did he/she even ID him/herself as an officer, I don't know. Maybe you could JUST(lol) get assault on that one.

Well, that's the point. If he is working as a bouncer, can Peterson be "resisting arrest" ?
