Adrian Peterson finally speaks about arrest; First video of incident emerges

For the first time since being arrested after allegedly pushing an off-duty police officer at a Houston nightclub early Saturday morning, Adrian Peterson has spoken out publicly about the incident.

It reportedly took several police officers to place Peterson under arrest after his confrontation with the off-duty officer. He has been charged with resisting arrest. On Twitter Sunday afternoon, the Vikings running back sent out a pair of tweets promising that the “truth will surface.”

In related news, the first video of the incident has surfaced. TMZ has obtained useless cell-phone camera footage supposedly of Peterson being placed under arrest. There’s a brief glimpse of Peterson being restrained by several officers. The rest of the time it’s shaky cell-phone camera video of the backs of people’s heads, the club’s wood-paneled walls and some guy’s plaid shirt. It contains no footage of the moments preceding Peterson’s arrest, including his initial confrontation with the officer, which would be more valuable and help our understanding of the incident, and is therefore a complete waste of time. We’re just passing it along in case you wanted to hear some woman off camera say, “Adrian is my friend.”
