Minn. Governor Defends Vikings RB Peterson
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Gov. Mark Dayton has a theory on why so many NFL players have been in trouble with the law lately – they have too much time on their hands and they have similarities with soldiers returning from war.
“Idle time is the devil’s play,” Dayton told Minnesota Public Radio on Tuesday.
Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson faces a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest after a confrontation with an off-duty police officer at a Houston night club. His next court date is Aug. 6.
