This just keeps getting worse.
KHOU, a television station in Houston, Texas, is reporting that Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is under investigation for a second abuse allegation.
This allegation is allegedly against another son, but not his son involved in the first allegation. However, this child is also four years old.
On Friday, Peterson was indicted for reckless or negligent injury to a child and was deactivated for the Vikings game against New England. Early Saturday morning, Peterson turned himself in, was booked and then released from jail shortly afterwards.
Earlier today, the Minnesota Vikings reinstated Peterson, and Peterson also released a statement about what happened over the weekend. Vikings GM Rick Spielman held a press conference to discuss the original allegations and reinstatement, and that was generally considered to be a fairly disastrous affair.
At the time of this posting, the neither the Vikings or Peterson have made a statement regarding this new, potential allegation.
