Viking running back Adrian Peterson’s attorney says he was a victim and a charge of resisting arrest is a “fabrication.”  Texas attorney Rusty Hardin released a statement Monday, two days after Peterson was released from a Houston jail.  Peterson was arrested shortly after 2am Saturday and charged with resisting arrest after he allegedly pushed a off-duty police officer who was working security at the night club.

Hardin says the allegations are “a total fabrication” and that Peterson was “the victim, not the aggressor.”  Peterson has initial court appearance on the misdemeanor charge scheduled for Friday.
