Adrian Peterson keeps his license despite being clocked at 109 mph

Vikings coach Brad Childress hasn’t decided whether to fine running back Adrian Peterson for missing mandatory minicamp practices, but the state of Minnesota has decided to fine him $378 for speeding.

Peterson will pay a $300 fine and $78 in surcharges after pleading guilty to driving 99 mph in a 55 mph zone, the Associated Press reports. He has also been ordered to do 16 hours of community service.

Based on the Associated Press report, it sounds like Peterson got off easy here: Peterson will keep his driver’s license even though he was clocked at 109 mph in a 55 mph zone. Minnesota law says that a driver’s license will be revoked for at least six months for driving over 100 mph, but Peterson was able to reach an agreement earlier this month to plead guilty to an amended charge that reduced his speed to 99 mph.

    109 MPH in a 55 MPH zone sounds reckless, until one considers that 55 is so artificially low in most areas where it’s posted as to count only as a revenue trap for motorists. I’m not going to criticize Peterson here; speed limits are bogus on their face and exist only as a revenue stream for states.

    Of course he was speeding to make it to practice on time!

    What happened to this guy? Did he get jealous of all the attention his fellow 2007 NFL draft peer Marshawn Lynch is getting?

    He gets charges dropped like it’s a football he’s carrying on Sundays.

    If it was Big Ben, he’d only have been going that fast to get away from the most recent jailbait he raped.

    Mike Daly — You’re not going to criticize AP for going 109 in a 55 zone? You’re an idiot with no grasp on reality. You’re the type of person that does what he wants without thinking of the consequences…it’s reckless drivers like you that kill innocent people.

  12. this class sucks says: Jun 15, 2010 7:52 PM

    @Mike Daly
    Someone got a speeding ticket recently (or is Florio goon with a troll post). Why don’t you go drive 90 by a school to fight our governments fascist speeding policies, that are only in place to collect revenue for their fascist agendas.

  13. robert ethen says: Jun 15, 2010 7:52 PM

    Plea bargain your speed down to 99? That sounds whacky. I suppose anything is possible.
    I’m going to try plea bargaining my height, my age, my net worth, and the length of my penis. You never know.

  14. CincyAllDaWay says: Jun 15, 2010 7:52 PM

    Speed limits exist for safety reasons you douche bag! I guess if this tool had lost control while driving at this speed and killed someone close to you you would assume that he’s drumming up business for the local undertaker huh! Some people should not be allowed to reproduce, most especially you moron!

  15. PULL&SEAL says: Jun 15, 2010 7:53 PM

    People say preferential treatment, but regular civilians get the same type of breaks all the time for first time offenses.

    Seriously? Is this really how you think? So anyone should be able to go any speed? 109 in a 55 zone IS reckless if there are others on the road obeying the law. Take away his license.

  18. CT Pats Fan says: Jun 15, 2010 7:55 PM

    $378? Oooh, that’ll teach him! He’ll really have to cut back on his expenses now. In sweden they fine you a percentage of your income – and they have hot chicks all over the place, so they must be on to something.

  19. Jamarcus says: Jun 15, 2010 7:55 PM

    Don’t compare this to any highway. Any Twin Cities resident knows, the Crosstown is nuts. Driving above 60 on it is pretty much lucky. It is known for sudden traffic jams, sharp curves, and construction. He got off really lucky. The judge really fumbled.

  20. Howboutdemcowboys says: Jun 15, 2010 7:57 PM

    In related news, after the hearing Adrian Peterson fumbled his keys and lost possession of the car

  21. HarrisonHits says: Jun 15, 2010 7:58 PM

    “speed limits are bogus on their face and exist only as a revenue stream for states.”
    Speed limits exist so idiots who think they are Nascar drivers don’t kill or seriously injure other people and themselves. I bet you don’t wear seat belts when you’re driving way over the speed limit either.

  22. NFC North Resident says: Jun 15, 2010 8:00 PM

    @ Mike Daly,
    I agree with you on the ‘speed limits are bogus’ idea, but he got pulled over on the Crosstown 62 in Edina doing 109. I don’t know if you’re from/familiar with the Twin Cities, but that’s not a major interstate out in the boonies. It’s two curvy lanes going each direction clogged to high hell with road construction, going right through the middle of both cities.
    Even in the winter, which is when he was pulled over, which makes it more dangerous and stupid. Doing 75 there would be dumb but excusable, but doing 109 is sh*t for brains stupid.

  23. John says: Jun 15, 2010 8:01 PM

    Wait, he got another speeding ticket? Or is this from the last time?

  25. snoogins says: Jun 15, 2010 8:06 PM

    Mike Daly -
    Yeah so doubling that speed sounds like an appropriate thing to do. Anything over 80 is excessive.

  30. myopinionisrighterthanyours says: Jun 15, 2010 8:18 PM

    The car was going 99 MPH. It was loaded down with all of Adrian’s lettuce. Wow, how the rules are truly different for the rich. And Mike Daly, dude, do the math. No matter how “artifically” low 55 MPH is, 109 is FREAKING DOUBLE THAT (minus one).

  31. QOTSA1 says: Jun 15, 2010 8:19 PM

    I’m shocked that the Minnesota Justice system would go easy on a member of the Vikings.

  33. AlanSaysYo says: Jun 15, 2010 8:26 PM

    How often do you hear about someone going double the speed limit in a 55mph zone?
    This clown deserves to lose his license for awhile. At that speed, relative to the drivers around him, he could have easily killed someone else in a collision. The fact that his punishment for that endagerment is $378 is beyond weak.

  34. nosferatu says: Jun 15, 2010 8:26 PM

    Wow it’s going to take one of these idiots dying to get them to slow down. Then again who cares, it their chose and as long as no innocent bystander gets hurt let them kill themselves.

  35. tombrookshire says: Jun 15, 2010 8:27 PM

    Sure wish I was an NFL player. Then I could flaunt the law in every single state in the union. I could drive fast, rape people, shoot people, kill people, pay other people to shoot and kill people, drink, take drugs and drive. Drink, take drugs and drive and kill people with my Bentley. Then lawyers and public relations folks will carefully craft an apology in legalese for me to read. Then, a 10 minute speech in some school, and I’m right back on the field, making my millions and good to go. The only thing I can’t do is shoot myself. That’s jail time, there. After my playing days are over, I can default on millions of dollars in loans, swindle nice people out of their life savings because people like and trust ex-NFL players. On second thought, I’ll be a broadcaster, no, a GM for a really stupid team owner who loves me, even though I’m a dope. Man, I love me some NFL!

  36. timegambit says: Jun 15, 2010 8:28 PM

    This may be only half the story.
    Cop wrote out another ticket, but AP fumbled it out the door and down the highway.
    The cop then made Peterson hold onto a heavier ticket until his court date.
    Stay tuned!

  37. Jhub12 says: Jun 15, 2010 8:29 PM

    Uhm…. you are not going to criticize peterson? Its not like he was going 75 in a 55, he was going 109!!!! thats insane, thats how people die, very easily. No human can react fast enough at that speed, nor could they do anything even if they could. Thats insanley dangerous and he deserves all the critizism in the world. Although, when i was in highschool (young and dumb) i got clocked at 115 in a 65 and i got a plea bargin to get it reduced to 99mph as well. That was completely irresponsible and foolish on my part, luckily i didnt kill myself out of stupidity, and good thing i grew up and no longer do retarded crap like that.

  38. SterilizeTHenry says: Jun 15, 2010 8:30 PM

    Everyone gets their “clocked MPH” reduced when they go to court. This is not a surprise.

  39. ItalianArmyGuy says: Jun 15, 2010 8:30 PM

    Bill Belicheat was also ordered to do community service once by Senator Arlen Specter. He was ordered to shave ItalianArmyGuy’s back-hair
    He put in 13 volunteer hours with a hedge trimmer and a chainsaw before he gave up, but only got about 1/4 of the way done. IAG’s back pimples kept whispering “cheater, cheater” in his ear – drove him completely insane
    Law enforcement in 3 states still have a warrant for his arrest for failure to complete the task

  43. CincyAllDaWay says: Jun 15, 2010 8:37 PM

    he probably blew the cop to get the reduction!

    ****psssst…you should think before you post so as to avoid situations such as these.

  45. realitypolice says: Jun 15, 2010 8:45 PM

    OMFG
    You people and your comments about how “anyone else would get 6 months” or “he must have given a signed jersey” or “he got special treatment”.
    Haven’t you ever plead down a speeding ticket? It happens 10 thousand times a day in traffic courts all over america. I have personally had my fines and penalties lowered in court 5 times for speeding and I am far from famous. In the last two years alone I have had 2 tickets reduced to offenses that carried no points. All you have to do is show up, say “yes sir” and “no sir” alot, be nice to the cop and the judge, and presto.
    People on here on robots. They give the same knee jerk responses to every story. You can predict exactly who is going to say what before you even finish the story.
    For God’s sake, if you don’t have time to put any thought into your response, stop wasting our time.

    @realitypolice
    THANK YOU! I guess nobody here has ever gone to court for speeding before. It is pretty much assumed that you will have your speed reduced if you go to court. Getting the speed reduced from 109 to 99 is not a huge break. The same would have happened if it were Joe Shmoe who was speeding.

  50. mike says: Jun 15, 2010 9:17 PM

    @myopinionisrighterthanyours
    He didn’t talk his way down 54mph…he got it reduced by 10 mph. That is standard when you go to court. The same thing would have happened with any one of us if we were in the same situation….as long as you aren’t a complete dick to the cop/judge.

    Okay, for all the clueless people out there defending AP saying the reduction would happen to anybody blah blah blah like you all got clocked at 109 in your Yugo’s before (if you could even get out of mom’s basement, that is, and borrow it), here is the key phrase to the whole story. Pay close attention to what happened here …
    Minnesota law says that a driver’s license will be revoked for at least six months for driving over 100 mph
    There, you all get what REALLY happened now? LOL @mike.

  57. BigOx says: Jun 15, 2010 10:05 PM

    Yeah, he got his violation and fine reduced – just like every other shlubb I’ve seen in traffic court. Seems like standard protocol here. I’ve seen first time DUI’s get similiar sentences. Personally, I wouldn’t mind such serious violators getting nailed to the wall, obviously fines and penalties aren’t stiff enough or we wouldn’t see such flagrant and widespread ignorant disregard for the law.

  58. c.carterhof says: Jun 15, 2010 10:13 PM

    This is an outrage! AD should be in jail, 109? Why…this is just typical Viking behavior. Thugs, all thugs.

  59. Dano-48 says: Jun 15, 2010 10:15 PM

    How many “regular” people have lost there licenses because they didn’t get a break. If your going 109 mph and the cop gave him a 10 mph break. How many regular citizens get a 10 mph break. It all goes back to if your a Viking in Minnesota the law inforcement gives then a break. Maybe he will end up going in front off the same judge that let the Williams off the hook

    ===================
    WTF are you talking about?
    He didn’t talk his way down 54 mph, he talked his way down 10 mph, from 109 to 99, thus getting under the 100 mph limit for license suspension.
    It’s actually very simple if you care to actually read the article.
    Oh, and nice job on the “mom’s basement” joke in your later post. Hadn’t heard that one before. Does someone write your material for you or did you come up with that one all by yourself.

    =============================
    If the cop was so determined to give him a break, why did he write him any ticket at all? Why didn’t he just let him go when he saw who it was? Cops don’t write tickets every time they stop someone.
    As for how many regular citizens get a 10 mph break- I was in traffic court about 6 months ago. There were about 50 of us. I would say about 30 people (I didn’t count- but sitting there while each person went in front of the judge, I would say that was the percentage) didn’t have prior violations and all were allowed to plead to a “no points violation” which wasn’t technically even a speeding ticket but a “failing to obey posted signs” limit. This was given regardless of the speed the person had been written up for.
    So sorry to muddle up your argument with actual facts.

    Oh, and by the way, since you obviously either didn’t read the article or didn’t understand it, he has already gone in front of the judge- hence the $378 fine and 16 hours of community service.
    You see, the way this works is you go before the judge to enter your plea and recieve your sentence.

    Yeah, and how many times have you talked your way down on a 54 MPH violation?
    YOU EVEN FREAKING QUOTED IT. Do they teach school in Minnesota. Nowhere do I say he talked it down 54 MPH. I said he got a FIFTY FREAKING FOUR MPH violation reduced. For those of you clueless, that means he went 54 MPH ABOVE the speed limit (or, again twice minus one).

    That Viking immorality comes from the top down. NonChristian ownership, flaky cross dressing coach, substance abusers on the team, steroid masking agents, speeding, and homosexual fans. It would one thing if he was pushing codeine or hiring prostitutes but speeding, wow that’s bad.

Regardless of how many Turd Watch points this is worth, it is another example of vikings disregard for the citizens of Minnesota and why the taxpayers do not want to pay for a new stadium for criminals, outsiders, and carpet bagging owners with no ties to the state.

    I can imagine how the conversation went…..
    Cop: “Do you know how fast your were going?”
    AD: “Well i can get her up to 120mph, but thats only if im chasing that cute chick in the Ferrari.”

    I wonder if the cop and the judge got free Vikings tickets from Childress or Ziggy.

    the Illinois police caught me going 105 once. 15 minutes later they let me go scott free. you’d think the second most famous athlete in Minnesota would do better than me

    Funny, last I remember Jolly has more serious charges against him but minimized by deluded fools here. Can I laugh any harder at Packer fans about a speeding ticket. Same old crap but still a new day….

    As always you keep lying on just about every Vikings post. It has been pointed out to you dozens of times, by numerous posters that there was no snow nor ice on the roads when Peterson was driving. I’ll never defend him for speeding like this, because he did endanger himself and others. But, quit lying everytime your mom lets you use the computer.

    109 in a 55 is okay? Are you serious Mike Daly? What if he hit somebody? We should have no speed zones? Are you freaking serious?

I mean, with his moves, where else would ANY Packer be except in Adrian Petersons rear-view. Well, an exception can be made of Al Harris since Adrian ran through him. ****psssst…you should think before you post so as to avoid situations such as these.
    Wow cuntra I didn’t even think of that, although, wasn’t Peterson the one chasing Matthews on his way to scoring six?

    AP should be subject to the same law as everyone else. Period. The fact that the charge was reduced by “only” 10 mph is irrelevant – he shouldn’t have been able to talk his way out of anything. “Normal” speeding is one thing, but driving that fast endangers others. You nick a fender, you lose control of the car. Driving twice the speed limit is ridiculous and juvenile.
    If this incident didn’t make up Chilly’s mind regarding that fine, then Chilly is even more lame than I think he is. And that’s sayin’ something.

  93. SterilizeTHenry says: Jun 16, 2010 8:05 AM

    When I was 16, I got caught going 75 in a 25. I was young and stupid. Because I was a first time offender the judge reduced it to 49 in a 25 so I kept my license.
    I didn’t have to suck anybody’s balls for that either. I just plead not guilty, showed remorse for my actions in court, and said “i’m sorry” many times.
    Happens ALL the time.

  94. Ambrose says: Jun 16, 2010 9:51 AM

    93 posts (so far) on this subject? Too much attention. This is not a big deal…he was caught speeding and got it reduced 10 MPH. So what? Everyday citizens get caught speeding everyday. He sure as hell didn’t negotiate that reduction himself, his attorney did, but it happends all the time. I’m only surprised that he wasn’t drinking too. Usually when somebody gets pulled over going that fast, they aren’t thinking too clearly. Maybe he had just heard that Favre was being given the reins to the team at that point of the season and his role was being reduced, and he was pissed.

  95. Mike Daly says: Jun 16, 2010 10:23 AM

    NinerNation – get this fact straight – 109 in a 55 MPH zone only SOUNDS reckless. The fact is virtually ALL 55 MPH zones are bogus – set up artificually low to trap motorists and thus provide a revenue stream for states. What Peterson did was NOT – repeat, NOT – reckless. You have no right to criticize him for this, or criticize me for pointing that fact out. So grow the hell up.

  96. Ruvell100 says: Jun 16, 2010 11:14 AM

    This is a non-story. The real story is why Peterson, the overrated freeloader, isn’t in camp. His measly 150 yards and 3 Tds in the NFC Championship are worth nothing since he lost 1.5 fumbles. Don’t give me that crap about being the NFL’s rushing leader over the last 3 years. Favre’s 1 Td, 2 Int performance was the only reason the Vikings were in the game. Favre has an excuse not to be in camp…just look at his playoff record over the last decade and a half. Peterson should learn from him how to be a hard worker, team player, leader by example, non-public cryer, family man, kid out there and also how to deliver in a big game when it matters most.

    Evidently asshat is ok (which it should be). I had to come up with a new email, new online name and some other crap because I said Contra should be basically sterilized. This site was better before the NBC affiliation. Now it gets censored way too much.

  99. sand0 says: Jun 16, 2010 1:26 PM

    I was pulled over for 85 in a 55 and just got a seatbelt ticket.
    Another time I was going about 100 in a 55 and the cop put a lower speed on the ticket so my fine wouldn’t be so big.
    And I’m not even famous. Why are people here complaining that someone didn’t get raped harder by cops? Oh yeah they hate the Vikings.
    Please don’t compare Peterson driving his BMW fast to crap like Roethlisburger borderline raping really young women.

    That Viking immorality comes from the top down. NonChristian ownership, flaky cross dressing coach, substance abusers on the team, steroid masking agents, speeding, and homosexual fans. It would one thing if he was pushing codeine or hiring prostitutes but speeding, wow that’s bad. They only wish they could be like superior Wisconsin and the mastery of the Green Bay organization. HeilPACK!

    Mike Daly says: June 15, 2010 7:37 PM 109 MPH in a 55 MPH zone sounds reckless, until one considers that 55 is so artificially low in most areas where it’s posted as to count only as a revenue trap for motorists.
    —————–
    Speed limits are to protect other from idiots like you. and 55 mph zones are generally in urban and residential areas. Where kids live. Please don’t wear your seat belt so that when you crash going 100 Mph you are ejected from the vehicle and smash yourself on your own stupidity. Oh, and don’t reproduce.

  109. RC IV says: Jun 17, 2010 8:46 AM

    For the record. he was on a highway, not a residential area.
    It’s a place near the cities that is known for speeding. Not justifying the speed of AD, just saying that it wasn’t an area where a lot of people were.
    It’s just fodder for you idiot Packer fans to vent your spleens. Pathetic and nothing new. You all say the same things every Viking post. Sad pathetic people.

    I agree, I can’t stand rapping chicks either. Course I guess I’m just not in to that whole hip hop scene anyway–must be my age.
