Sports Stars Involved in Nightclub Violence

Adrian Peterson 1 of 10

Adrian Peterson, four-time All-Pro running back of the Minnesota Vikings, was arrested in July 2012 after reportedly pushing an officer and resisting arrest at Live! at Bayou Place in downtown Houston.

  • When an off-duty police officer working security for the club told Peterson the club was closing and it was time to leave, Peterson and his group stayed put.
  • After the officer repeated the command, Peterson reportedly shoved the officer. The officer told Peterson he was under arrest, but Peterson resisted and struggled until two other officers could step in to assist in detaining him.
  • Peterson currently faces a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest.
