Adrian Peterson arrested in Houston
Adrian Peterson can't seem to keep a low profile off the field. Between speeding tickets, comparing professional football to slavery, and getting a McDonald's employee fired for letting him use the bathroom after hours, the Vikings running back has a way of finding himself on the wrong side of a headline.

And so it goes, again.
Early Saturday morning, Peterson was arrested in Houston after he allegedly pushed an officer and then resisted arrest, according to the Houston Chronicle.
A Houston police spokesman didn't return a call to City Pages Saturday, but according to the Chronicle, Peterson was at a bar with a group of people and wouldn't leave after last call. An off-duty police officer working security asked them to leave twice, and Peterson retorted by shoving him.
Peterson was booked under the offense "Resist arrest/Search-Unclassif," according to jail records, and his bail was set at $1,000. The Chronicle reports that Peterson was released this morning.
The good news: Peterson's in good company. As we reported last year, the Vikings have had more arrests than any other team in the league since 2000. Maybe they can take the title for a second consecutive decade.
