Houston Police Department Spokesperson Kese Smith told NFL.com and NFL Network on Monday that Vikings RB Adrian Peterson would probably end up with a fine because his charge is a misdemeanor.
Peterson is due back in court on Friday and has no known prior record. Smith said he'd believed that Peterson's case would be adjudicated quickly. Peterson's arrest document indicates he pushed a police officer and that Peterson knew the person was an officer.
In the end, this incident will probably have been blown way out of proportion. We don't expect it to have an impact on Peterson's 2012 production. But it likely doesn't matter as we are staying away from Peterson anywhere near his current ADP of 16.
