Minnesota All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson was arrested in Houston early Saturday morning on a charge of resisting arrest.
The four-time 1,000-yard rusher, widely considered the best active running back in the NFL, was released from jail after posting a $1,000 bond.
Houston police offered few other details in the case involving Peterson, whose 2011 season was ended on Christmas Eve when he tore both major ligaments in his left knee only 30 yards short of his fifth consecutive 1,000-yard rushing season. He has rushed for 6,752 yards in five seasons.
Peterson, who grew up in Palestine, Texas, was at the dining and entertainment area known as Bayou Place at the time of his arrest, according to the Houston Chronicle.
