REPORT: ADRIAN PETERSON’S 2-YEAR-OLD SON ATTACKED, IN CRITICAL CONDITION - The 2-year-old son of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is in critical condition in a South Dakota hospital after he was allegedly beaten by a man the child’s mother was dating, TMZ reports.
The child suffered “severe head injuries” in the beating according to the website.
Peterson left the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday to be with his young son.
Authorities have arrested Joseph Patterson, 27, in connection to the beating. Patterson is facing charges of aggravated felony assault and battery of an infant.
Peterson’s son was found unresponsive by paramedics and rushed to the hospital around 5:45 p.m. Wednesday.
These are details of the situation via the Argus 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.
Doctors determined the child’s injuries were consistent with abuse according to the report.
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.
Peterson returned to Eden Prairie, MN, and is expected to be at practice Friday, according to ESPN. (Photo: USA Today Sports)
