MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas – A Texas court says a former Sooner standout should be behind bars after he allegedly violated the terms of his bond.
Adrian Peterson is accused of child abuse after his 4-year-old son had marks on his body from a ‘switch.’
Peterson admits to punishing the boy, saying he experienced the same type of punishment as a child.
He did not enter a plea and the hearing was reset.
While in court, Peterson submitted to a urinalysis exam.
According to court documents, Peterson allegedly admitted to an employee conducting the exam that he “smoked a little weed.”
On Thursday, the State of Texas asked for Peterson’s bond to be revoked, saying smoking marijuana is in violation of his current bond.
Court documents show that Peterson is out of jail on a $15,000 bond for the charge.
Rusty Hardin, Peterson’s attorney, says the government’s motion to revoke his client’s bond can’t be heard until it is decided whether Judge Case will be recused.
The recusal hearing is expected to be held next week.
In the meantime, Peterson remains free on bond.
