Adrian Peterson ended up making a useless trip to court on Monday.
In Houston for a pre-trial hearing in the criminal case against him for resisting arrest, Peterson’s case was adjourned until September 27. Another hearing has been set for November 15.
It’s unknown whether Peterson will be required to attend either or both hearings. The first one lands on a Thursday before the Week Four game at Detroit. The second falls on the Thursday before the team’s bye.
According to the Associated Press, lawyer Rusty Hardin said that prosecutors need more time to conduct interviews and examine the evidence. Hardin previously has said that he hopes prosecutors will drop the charges.
Peterson, who is still recovering from a torn ACL suffered December 24, did not speak to reporters. He signed autographs in the courtroom. Hopefully, the judge didn’t ask for one.
Actually, from Peterson’s perspective, hopefully she did.
