The attorney for Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson says his client was a victim and a charge of resisting arrest is a "fabrication."
Texas attorney Rusty Hardin released a statement Monday, two days after Peterson was released from a Houston jail. The running back was arrested and charged with resisting arrest after allegedly pushing an off-duty police officer who was working security at a night club.
Hardin says the allegations are "a total fabrication" and that Peterson was "the victim, not the aggressor." Peterson has an initial court appearance on the misdemeanor scheduled for Friday.
Hardin represented Roger Clemens in his recent perjury case. Clemens was charged with lying to Congress when he denied using performance-enhancing drugs. He was retried this year and found not guilty on all counts.
