Adrian Peterson Lawyer Denies New Abuse Claim

Adrian Peterson Lawyer Denies New Abuse Claim

Adrian Peterson’s lawyer denies allegations that his client harmed a second four-year-old son.

“The allegation of another investigation into Adrian Peterson is simply not true,” Rusty Hardin said. “This is not a new allegation, it’s one that is unsubstantiated and was shopped around to authorities in two states over a year ago and nothing came of it. An adult witness adamantly insists Adrian did nothing inappropriate with his son. There is no ongoing or new investigation.”

Peterson faces a charge in Montgomery County, Texas, for allegedly beating a four-year-old son with a switch. This additional allegation involves a separate four-year-old boy. KHOU-TV in Houston broadcast a blurred-out picture of the child with two band-aids, and text messages between Peterson and the child’s mother suggesting a physical disciplining of the boy by the Minnesota Vikings running back.

“Be still n take ya whooping he would have saved the [scar],” Peterson allegedly texted the boy’s mom. “He aight.”

Hardin has represented Wade Boggs, Warren Moon, Steve Francis, Roger Clemens, and other star athletes in high-profile cases prior to taking on Peterson’s case.
