Adrian Peterson Arrest: Video From Incident Released Online

Charged with resisting arrest after a hazy incident in Houston, Texas, Minnesota Vikings tailback Adrian Peterson is facing plenty of scrutiny as details of his messy situation continue to come forward. And now, via TMZ.com, we have a 36-second video of what appears to be Peterson getting hauled off in handcuffs:

As nice as it might be to actually see a ridiculously brief part of what happened, this clip provides no evidence whatsoever of what took place at roughly 2:00 a.m. that morning. Some witnesses have said that Peterson was extremely drunk and escalated things himself, while others have said that the club's bouncers were the ones causing the issue. Regardless, it will be hard to make full sense of this situation until some sort of damning surveillance video is released. Until then, both sides will continue to deflect any blame.
