Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has found himself in trouble this season since he was indicted on child abuse charges.
The running back took disciplinary action against his four-year-old son by spanking him with a tree branch without leaves, leaving cuts and bruises on his lower body area.
Peterson has been in even more hot water recently since a report came out stating that he fathered six children with six different women, and he also allegedly pulled a charity scam.
The Vikings running back is expected to face two years in prison if he is charged and convicted on child abuse charges, but the NFL is expected to take action even if he is found not guilty according to ESPN.
Peterson will likely be suspended for violating the league’s personal conduct policy if he gets off free. In addition to the alleged child abuse, Peterson’s admission that he smoked marijuana before giving a urine sample may be a factor.
