Adrian Peterson misdemeanor case pushed back to August 6

HOUSTON (AP) — Prosecutors have agreed to reset Adrian Peterson’s court date to Aug. 6 on a misdemeanor charge stemming from an incident at a Houston nightclub.

The Minnesota Vikings running back was charged with resisting arrested and briefly jailed after a confrontation with an off-duty police officer at the club last Saturday. Police say Peterson pushed the officer after he asked Peterson and his acquaintances to leave the club, which was closed.

Peterson and attorney Rusty Hardin arrived early for his initial court hearing on Friday, then left before Judge Natalie Fleming even arrived. Hardin says he wants prosecutors to gather more information.

Peterson said outside the courtroom that he is “200 percent innocent” and that he didn’t “push, shove, touch anyone that night, especially an officer.”
