Minnesota Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman held a press conference today to announce the team’s decision to reactivate child abuser Adrian Peterson. Spielman stressed that the team did not condone child abuse, and that Peterson — who was arrested Friday for child abuse — should be allowed due process under the law.
But he also said: “We feel strongly as an organization that this [was] disciplining a child.”
The Minnesota Vikings have a PR nightmare on their hands. The team is considering trading their star running back Adrian Peterson to another team following his arrest on child abuse charges on Saturday.
Former Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson turned himself in to Houston authorities early Saturday morning. On Friday a grand jury indicted Peterson on charges of whipping his 4-year-old son with a tree branch. Peterson, 29, was booked into jail at 1 a.m. Saturday and released 30 minutes later on $15,000 bond. Houston police released this mugshot of an arrogant Peterson smiling as if he didn’t have a care in the world.
Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson was “deactivated” (read: suspended) after he was indicted for viciously beating his 4-year-son with a switch. Peterson’s weak excuse was that he disciplined his son in the manner which he was raised.
The sad irony is Peterson’s secret Love child was beaten to death in October by his mother’s boyfriend.
Joseph Patterson, 27, was arrested and charged in that case.
Thomas Mikal Ford, aka Tommy Ford, has been served with a restraining order by the mother of his child, who currently resides in Atlanta.
Ford, 52, his known for his comedic work in TV sitcoms Martin and The Parkers.
Georgia Gwinnett College police have arrested a mother who allegedly locked her child in a hot car that was parked in ‘direct sunlight.”
Channel 2 Action news reports an arrest warrant was issued for Crystal Franklin, 28, who allegedly locked her 6-year-old child in a sweltering car on the campus in Lawrenceville, GA on Friday.
The arrest warrant obtained by Channel 2 Action News states, “child might reasonably be expected to be injured, as follows: hyperthermia due to locking child in vehicle with outside air temperature of 90 degrees in direct sunlight.”
No status was given on the child’s condition. Lawrenceville, GA is located about 33 miles northeast of Atlanta.
