Peterson at 2008 Pro Bowl
Viking’s running back Adrian Peterson was nailed by police for allegedly doing 109 mph on a suburban Minneapolis highway. The AP reports that Peterson was pulled over just before 8:30 PM on Saturday on “crosstown” State Highway 62, which connects Minneapolis with suburbs to the south and west. According to the Edina Police Department, it was a “very routine” traffic stop. Peterson was given a citation and allowed to drive away. Peterson, who was driving his BMW in a 55mph zone, says he wasn’t going that fast. The next night he sprinted out an 85 yard touchdown in the Viking’s win over Chicago. No BMW necessary.
