Yep. Most likely.

I agree ...even though I worked in Law Enforcement for 6 years, there are some real a*****es out there in uniform, I worked with some real a*****es that liked being a cop "TOO MUCH" and took their Jobs way too seriously .,.....I worked with one Jerk that came into to work on his day off out of nowhere , just to arrest his own wife because she was out drinking with her friends ...charge her with "Disorderly Conduct" ...IMO the biggest a*****e cops are the ones that wear T-Shirts that say POLICE OFFICER in public on their days off

So I'm sure it's a feather in some cops hat to brag that he arrested an NFL superstar

especially a off duty cop who was probably at a night club just to arrest someone.
WTF is a off duty cop doing at a club sober? (unless he's security)

now that i think about it. i bet that cop has called a few black guys the N word.

It says all the cops were off duty working as club security. I'm curious as to if they were in uniform. Pushing a uniformed officer, not smart. Pushing what appears to be just another security dude? Meh.

Does anybody know the laws on dealing with a cop when they are off duty? If you hit them out of uniform is it the same penalty?Maybe if he identify's himself as a cop.. Who knows... I heard there was a video so it will eventually come out if there was.

When officers work extra jobs in houston they have to be in uniform and they have the same powers to arrest as they do when working for the city.

if you are in law enforcement and have been for that long u know exactly what i mean.
not questioning your ethics or morals just saying.
Adrian Peterson hired the guy that is generally considered the best trial atty in Houston, Rusty Hardin.

Hardin also represented Clemens (who was found not guilty on all counts).

I assume you aren't a cop or know any on a personal basis. Why would an off duty cop go to a club and not drink...maybe he doesn't drink or is the DD for the group he is with, happens a lot.

I'm sure he has been called a pig by a few guys as well.

i knew a cop that was like that when he was off duty. whenever we went out he just felt obligated (or "entitled" depending which person in our group you asked) to take care of everyone else (even though there were other responsible drivers designated, or plans for taxi).................. he'd get pissed of at the guys for acting crazy and showed concern for the women we were with for doing the same thing.................

he stopped getting invites to go out after a while........................

just saying.

I'm not describing a douche bag, which that guy clearly was. Asking why anyone would go to a club and not drink is kind of stupid...aren't cops allowed to go out and have fun? Some people don't need to drink to have a good time with people.

no doubt they're allowed to, and i'm not saying theyr'e all the same, i've met good and bad cops, but i think for some, being a cop is how they have fun.

I know a lot of them and maybe its just the area, they all like being cops but don't push it on people. If fights have broken out and the security is overwhelmed they would jump in to help, but they aren't looking for fights or problems. Normally when people find out they are cops they ask them a million questions, which is kind of funny.
Dudes in the article it said the officer was working for the bar at the time and he was doing the dirty work after last call.

I dont care how big of an a*****e he was being why the f**k would Peterson push him?
I tend to believe that the version Peterson's badass lawyer put out is much closer to the truth; that it's a lie that Peterson shoved the guy (maybe swatted a hand off of himself or something), that Peterson was the victim and was himself basically assaulted. I assume he had been drinking and played his part, but didn't do anything outrageous.

Peterson's attorney, Rusty Hardin, called the charge and the allegation that Peterson shoved the officer "a total fabrication."

"He, in fact, was struck at least twice in the face for absolutely no legitimate reason, and when all the evidence is impartially reviewed, it will clearly show Adrian was the victim, not the aggressor," Hardin said.

"It is absolutely clear to me that the charges should not have been filed, and the Bayou Club owes Adrian an apology for having put out a totally false version of what happened. Adrian Peterson does not act the way he has been described in the initial reports, and he did not act that way Saturday morning. He was only in that club for 30 to 40 minutes, was never objectionable to other patrons, and never physically resisted any police officer. Adrian is extremely upset about these false allegations. These charges are totally at odds with the way he has conducted himself throughout his career, and he asks that his fans and the public at large reserve judgment until they hear all the facts. Adrian looks forward to his day in court."

I like the Churchill quote Adrian posted later in the day of the incident; "A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on."

Adrian reportedly suffered a black eye from the struggle that ensued after the off-duty cop was "very disrespectful" and used "vulgar language."

His dad was sentenced to 10 years in prison when Adrian was 13. "He knows that his actions affect him and his kids also," said Nelson Peterson. He added: "Adrian is kind of frustrated because he's the kind of guy who's tried to do the right things in society and he cares about being a high-character guy. He has a 9-year-old daughter, so he doesn't want her hearing in the news about how he's being perceived."

I'm kinda surprised the owner even weighed in at all, much less talk s**t about Adrian.

Regardless, the owner and the bouncers can feel all good that they could enforce their rules and version of law, but Adrian followed their hand by playing his own hand and hired a powerful attorney and launched his own counter-attack that will win.

Charges will be dropped and apologies will be made to AP. If not, they'll pay significant money that he'll probably donate.

nights over and they want to herd you out with the rest of the crowd.

AP was probably thinking. i just spent THOUSANDS here i dont want to leave with the herd . He may have wanted to sneak out the back door. for all we know the club owner might have told him to wait here after we close and ill escort you out the back (NEVER KNOW) i have been to places and have had that treatment and im just a avg joe.

It doesn't matter if your asked to leave you leave. I bet the club had to get everyone out by a certain time or risk losing the liquor liscence. What's more important a rich douche's ego or keeping your business open?
