Default Re: Adrian Peterson arrested in Houston

So it sounds like he was drunk and did a big no-no and pushed a uniformed officer and even went chickensh-- and did it when the officer's back was turned. The officer placed him under arrest (probably to escort him out, who wants to deal with paperwork for a push) and Peterson resisted arrest and made things 100 times worse.

Why are people defending him now?

I don't know that anyone is defending him now. We're all speculating as to what happened as we don't have enough info.

This actually isn't true completely. There are a lot of NBA players and NFL players who have homes in Houston, but don't play here. I will say that lately there is a thought out there amongst a lot of people that clubbing options for young, rich, BLACK athletes have become limited here in Houston. Probably a good thing though because it would seem to do these guys a favor and keep them out of trouble.

As for as AP, I really see it as being out of character for him. If he initiated contact with the officer then he was justified in being arrested. HPD hasn't been notorious for throwing their weight around against high profile athletes here, but there have been a couple of incidents that have brought attention. In fact, most of the interactions that I've been around have seen HPD cater to guys in different ways to look out for them. Pretty sure that more will come out over the next few days, but I'm sure the Vikings probably just care that AP was out getting hammered while he's trying to recover from an ACL injury. Having seen my share of fights in clubs and bars in Houston, I'm sure they would want him to not chance it by being in that type of environment.

I don't defend what AP did, but his reputation is as a pretty solid guy. Probably shouldn't get drunk, but did. Acted a fool, got popped. It happens. Doesn't define who he is, though, except that he's human and made a mistake.

Unfortunately, all that shows is him being handcuffed and let out. And it shows the officers were, indeed, in uniform.

NBA players don't want to live here? I thought Houston was packed full of pro athletes?

Yeah our clubs are terrible. They make you leave at closing time.....Peterson is a big man, I wonder how much alkyhall it takes to sway his sobriety.

yep. Especially when the club's GM said in a public statement that AP was "throwing his ego around and making people mad, so they put him in the VIP area."

Just another drunk pro athlete with his head up in the clouds and HPD made his feet touch the ground. But, I'm sure Rusty Hardin will be glad to take his hard earned money and get this absolved.

I'm not sure why this is getting so much chatter. There are no bad cops here. I think they went easy on him. JMO.

The one problem I do have with the story is actually a philosophical one not specific to this story, and that is off-duty police acting with full authority of the police. I have always had an issue with that, but it has no real bearing on this specific story.

Perhaps I was wrong about AP taking his medicine & moving on.
