Resisting arrest charges dropped against Vikings’ Adrian Peterson

HOUSTON (AP) — A grand jury in Houston has dismissed a misdemeanor resisting arrest charge against Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson after hearing from the four-time Pro Bowl running back and other witnesses.

Derek Hollingsworth, one of Peterson’s attorneys, said Tuesday the case stemming from Peterson’s July 7 arrest outside a night club is expected to be formally dropped on Wednesday. Peterson was due in court for a pretrial hearing on Thursday before Judge Natalie Fleming.

Hollingsworth said Peterson testified before the grand jury on Tuesday, two days after he rushed for 171 yards on the Vikings’ 34-24 win over Detroit. Peterson is the NFL’s leading rusher this season, averaging 112.8 yards per game. The Vikings (6-4) have their open date this week.
