    Terrible news about Adrian Peterson's son

    I don't understand how someone can do such a thing. There isn't a punishment severe enough to fit the crime, imo.

    Vikings running back Adrian Peterson missed practice this week to be in South Dakota for what orginally was vaguely described as a "medical issue involving a young family member."

     

     

    Now, according to TMZ, Peterson's two-year-old son is in critical condition in a South Dakota hospital after he was allegedly beaten by the man dating the boy's mother.

    Officials told TMZ the suspect is Joseph Patterson, who has been charged with aggravated felony assault and battery of an infant.

    Authorities haven't confirmed that the child is Peterson's son (and at least one report says it isn't).

    “At this point, we're not going to confirm anything," Sioux Falls Police Department spokesman Sam Clemens said, via the Argus Leader. "Who the father is does not come into play in this investigation, so we're not going to be releasing any information as far as that goes."

    More details via the Leader:

    The child was alone in Patterson's home at Platinum Valley Apartments, where he'd recently moved with his mother. Patterson called 911 to report a choking on Wednesday evening, but Lt. Blaine Larsen of the Sioux Falls Police Department said it became clear at the hospital that the boy's injuries were not accidental. ...

    The child was taken by ambulance to a local hospital, where he remained in critical condition Thursday night, Larsen said. An examination led doctors to suspect that the boy's injuries were “consistent with abuse” and not accidental, Larsen said.

    Patterson has a son with another Sioux Falls, SD, woman who, according to court records, had asked for protection orders twice, claiming that Patterson had choked and punched her, threatened her with a knife and held her in the bedroom against her will.

    According to the Leader, the assault-on-an-infant charge "involves blows, shaking or causing a child's head to sustain impact with an object in a manner that causes bleeding or swelling on the brain. The crime is punishable by up to 25 years in prison."

    Peterson returned to Eden Prairie, MN, and is expected to be at practice Friday, according to ESPN.

    I hope the child makes a swift and full recovery.

    What a cowardly act if it's true he did it.I'll bet AP would love to have 15 minutes alone with the scum-bag.

    As a parent of 2 young children, I would like to see the scum bag who did this punished with severe violence. Absolutely inexcusable and tragic. My heart goes out to the child and the family.
