Adrian Peterson facing jail time after pot admission
Texas prosecutors have filed paperwork to have Adrian Peterson’s bail revoked and the Minnesota Vikings running back re-arrested after he admitted that he recently smoked marijuana to a drug tester during a urinalysis on Wednesday.
According to the filing signed by Bill Delmore, the Assistant District Attorney for the state of Texas, Peterson admitted to the worker that he had “smoked a little weed” before the test. Not taking any illegal drugs are common terms to adhere to when out on bond.
“In light of this statement, and the fact that it was made during the urinalysis testing process, and the term ‘weed’ is a common slang term for marijuana, the state argues that the defendant has smoked marijuana while on bond,” the district attorney’s office wrote.
Peterson has been free on bond on a charge of felony child abuse. A trial is set to start on Dec. 1.
Peterson’s attorney, Rusty Hardin, urged the public not to “rush to judgment” with his client. Peterson is accused of striking his 4-year-old son with a switch excessively.
