Minnesota Vikings star Adrian Peterson was arrested early Saturday morning in Houston for resisting arrest. Associated Press is reporting he was released on $1,000 bond.

Peterson was reportedly in a nightclub with his wife and friends. Police showed up at closing time and asked clubgoers to leave. When Peterson wanted to get water first, an officer asked him to leave, and words were exchanged. The report also said it took multiple officers to take him down to complete the arrest.

Vikings representatives said they are still gathering information on the incident.

Peterson, a native of Texas and a two-time All Pro selection, is currently rehabbing an ACL tear he sustained late in 2011. In four seasons, he ran for 6,752 yards, including a league-leading 1,760 in 2008.
