Adrian Peterson turned himself in to authorities in Houston early Saturday morning.
The Minnesota Vikings running back, who was indicted Friday on a charge of injury to a child, was booked at Montgomery County Jail and then released after posting $15,000 bond, according to USA Today.
Peterson’s attorney, Rusty Hardin, released a statement saying his client regrets the incident in question, which involved Peterson using a “switch” to spank his 4-year-old son.
“Adrian has never hidden from what happened,” Hardin said in the statement. “He has cooperated fully with authorities and voluntarily testified before the grand jury for several hours.
“Adrian will address the charges with the same respect and responsiveness he has brought to this inquiry from its beginning. It is important to remember that Adrian never intended to harm his son and deeply regrets the unintentional injury.”
Peterson will not play Sunday when the Vikings host the New England Patriots.
