Prosecutors Want Adrian Peterson Arrested For Smoking Pot On Bond
According to TMZ reports:
Prosecutors in Montgomery County, Texas, have filed paperwork to have Adrian Peterson’s bail revoked and the Minnesota Vikings running back re-arrested after he told a drug tester that he had recently smoked marijuana before taking a urinalysis test Wednesday.
According to the filing signed by Bill Delmore, the Assistant District Attorney for the state of Texas, Peterson admitted to the worker that he had “smoked a little weed” before the test. Not taking any illegal drugs are common terms to adhere to when out on bond.
“In light of this statement, and the fact that it was made during the urinalysis testing process, and the term ‘weed’ is a common slang term for marijuana, the state argues that the defendant has smoked marijuana while on bond,” the district attorney’s office wrote.
Peterson has been free on $15,000 bond on a charge of felony child abuse. A trial has tentatively been set to begin Dec. 1.
There cannot be any action on the bond revocation or any arrest warrant issued before a hearing is held on whether the judge hearing Peterson’s case should be recused. No hearing has been scheduled and likely won’t happen until next week at the earliest.
You would think someone who is facing prison time and the loss of tens of millions of dollars would be livin’ as legal as possible…
