Seven-person orgies involving his brother, a minor. Fathering children with six different women in "at least" three different states.
The Adrian Peterson story just keeps getting darker.
On the heels of his indefinite suspension for an ongoing child abuse investigation, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune has dug up some troubling details regarding Peterson's private life. One 38-page police report, in particular, provides long-sought answers to questions Peterson has dodged for years regarding his private life.
If Peterson's image wasn't already tarnished, this latest report should seal the deal. The police report stems from a hotel orgy in 2011 that involved seven people, including Peterson, his underage brother, another relative, and four women.
Police were eventually called to scene, and this is what they found:
The woman Peterson was engaged to at the time is now his wife, Ashley Brown. Even more damning for the Minnesota Vikings star, according the Star-Tribune, is that the hotel room was reportedly paid for using a company credit card for All Day Foundation, Peterson's charitable organization.
Adrian Peterson's fallout is ongoing, and the results of his pending court case will play a major role in his future in the NFL. But it seems more likely with each passing day that when he does return to the NFL, it won't be in a Vikings uniform.
UPDATE: Peterson's camp is disputing some of the information in the original Star-Tribune report. The newspaper wrote that, on the night of the hotel orgy documented in the police report, "One of those present, Chris Brown, a Peterson relative who lives with him in Eden Prairie, told police that he paid for the room using a company credit card for Peterson's All Day, Inc."
Peterson's representatives contend that the running back did not have a foundation credit card at the time, and did not use foundation funds for any personal expenses. The representatives also make it clear that Chris Brown has never possessed a credit card from the foundation, and has never had access to foundation funds.
"There is no question that prior to 2011, issues existed with the administration of Adrian’s foundation," said Peterson's attorney, Rusty Hardin, in a statement. "When this was brought to his attention, Adrian made changes to the organization and brought in new leadership.
"Since that time, Adrian and his foundation have given more than $1.4 million to many worthy causes, including many to organizations that benefit children."
Hardin's statement also made it clear that Peterson's camp will no longer be responding to future reports or claims, unfounded or otherwise, until the trial begins.
