Fox Houston reports that Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has been indicted in Montgomery County, Texas, for reckless or negligent injury to a child.
According to Fox Houston’s Isiah Carey, the charges stem from allegations that Peterson "beat his young son."
NFL.com’s Ian Rapaport adds this detail:
Jay Glazer adds that Peterson has been cooperating with law enforcement, and will now have to turn himself in to authorities. Rapaport notes that Peterson testified before a grand jury weeks ago.
Peterson keeps a home in Houston suburb The Woodlands, which lies in Montgomery County.
Peterson missed yesterday’s team practice for what coach Mike Zimmer called a “veteran day.”He was back with the Vikings today.
