Joseph Robert Patterson, the man accused of killing Adrian Peterson’s son last year, has been free on bail since October. But now Patterson is locked up again, accused of attacking the mother of the 2-year-old boy he allegedly killed last year.
The Argus-Leader reports that Patterson has been arrested on kidnapping and assault charges for reportedly attacking the mother of 2-year-old Tyrese Doohen.
Patterson is still facing the charges of murder and child abuse in the death of Tyrese. He had been living with and dating Tyrese’s mother at the time of the boy’s death.
Patterson, who had been ordered not to have contact with Tyrese’s family, is expected to appear in court this afternoon.
