    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.

    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 ...

    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.

    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.

    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" ?
