Adrian Peterson Arrest: Minnesota Running Back Believes He Has Reasonable Doubt On His Side

On Wednesday afternoon, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson continued to plead his case in the court of public opinion when his attorney Rusty Hardin appeared on the Dan Patrick show and stated that he hopes that the prosecution will choose to drop the case due to reasonable doubt.

During the interview Hardin explained that the nightclub where Peterson was arrested had no surveillance footage of the alledged incident that resulted in injuries to Peterson and an arrest as well as the claim that six eye witnesses are able to testify that the star running back did nothing wrong.

Hardin hopes this will be enough to persuade the prosecution to drop the charges out of fear of not being able to convince the jury to hand down a conviction.
