Houston, TX - Vikings running back Adrian Peterson appeared in a Houston courtroom Friday morning where attorneys on both sides agreed to reset the case to August 6th, 2012.
Peterson is facing a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest after an incident in a Houston area nightclub on Saturday, July 7th. Peterson is allegedly shoved an off duty officer and resisted arrest as others jumped in to aid the off duty patrolman.
On Tuesday afternoon, Peterson's attorney joined KFAN's Dan Barreiro for his first public appearance where Rusty Hardin said that the early reports of what went down that night were "a total lie."
While the two sides remain largely at odds with what happened that evening, Peterson continues to proclaim his innocence through his representation.
"Only one person was scuffled with and that was [Adrian]," Hardin claimed.
Adrian and the Minnesota Vikings are scheduled to have both morning and afternoon practices for Training Camp in Mankato, MN on August 6th. The delayed hearing may be a round about motion by both sides to get the charges dropped outright without involving the courts. Only time will tell.
