03:14 PM ET 11.13 | Adrian Peterson is in the clear. The Minnesota Vikings running back was arrested over the summer for resisting arrest. The Houston police department said several off-duty police officers helped subdue Peterson, who they say shoved an off-duty police officer, and wasn't leaving as the night club closed. Peterson maintained his innocence throughout the ordeal and has been granted good news: all charges have been dropped.

He should do this every off season, if it results in this kind of a regular season!

A brown sack for the DA and a donation to the police pension fund works wonders.

Seven off duty cops still couldn't bring him down. Never let the man tell you what to do Bro

A lot of that is cops fluffing the arrest report to look good and make him look guilty.

I consider that an insult to law enforcement officers.

No doubt. Adrian woulkd never, never, never do anything except act like a boy scout. Those mean old pigs were trying to make him look bad while he was helping a handicapped child cross the street.

True, in fact out here in the southwest, when facing a cop, a cellphone in your hand is a very bad idea.
