Former Oklahoma running back and current Minnesota Vikings Running back Adrian Peterson was arrested at a Houston nightclub. The 27 year old Peterson was arrested for hitting an off-duty Houston police officer in the shoulder when he approached the running back upon routine rounds, with the request to leave due to closing time.

The push escalated the situation, and caused local law enforcement to be called on Peterson. Peterson, as any fine upstanding citizen would do, he took to Twitter, tweeting, “Thank you for waiting for the facts. Truth will surface.” Peterson also tweeted a famous quote from Winston Churchill: “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.”

According to documents, the charges against Adrian Peterson are filled as a misdemeanor and he is scheduled to appear in front of a judge in Harris County on 13 July.

A video of the incident surfaced on the web, check it out below.
