Bomani Jones Investigates Adrian Peterson's Arrest

All of the details are still a bit confusing when it comes to the Adrian Peterson ordeal. He was arrested for resisting arrest, which itself makes no sense. He reportedly had some words with an officer after trying to enter a closed nightclub to get some water, and some sort of skirmish began after that.

Either way, Peterson ended up in jail and it's still somewhat unclear why. Enter SB Nation Studio's Bomani Jones and his hard nosed investigation skills.

Jones has a few questions about the whole ordeal. Why did Peterson start something with the police in the first place? How can you get arrested for resisting an arrest that wasn't taking place? And most importantly, why would anyone think that jumping on Adrian Peterson's or any top NFL running back from behind would bring him down?

Hopefully, we'll all get some answers to these important questions about Peterson's arrest sooner rather than later.
