Adrian Peterson has case reset for Aug. 6

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson appeared in Harris County Criminal Court this morning and has his case reset for Aug. 6.

Peterson is facing a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest after a conflict with an off-duty Houston police officer last Saturday at a Houston nightclub. His day in court will have to wait.

Peterson was escorted by his high-profile attorney Rusty Hardin, according to the Houston Chronicle. The Vikings star, who is rehabilitating from a torn ACL suffered late last season, is adamant he is innocent. He is accused of pushing the police officer.

I’ve told my family, friends and now my fans that I’m 110 percent, 200 percent, innocent,” Peterson said, according to the Chronicle. “I never pushed, shoved, touched anything or anyone that night, especially an officer.”

Hardin has maintained the club owes Peterson and apology, and says it’s inexplicable his client would be charged for resisting arrest when there was no grounds to arrest him in the first place.
