A court date has been set for Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson for his indictment on child abuse charges.
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is facing scrutiny for being indicted for child abuse since it was allegedly discovered that he spanked his four-year-old son with a switch.
The switch that was used was a tree branch with the leaves cut off, and Peterson wanted to discipline his son for pushing another child when they were playing a video game.
A court date has been set for the Vikings running back, and it is set for a Wednesday.
Here is a tweet from NFL Network reporter Jeff Darlington revealing Peterson’s first court date.
Adrian Peterson’s first court date has been scheduled for Oct. 8 at 9 a.m. That’s the Wednesday before Vikings play Lions in Minnesota.
