According to Carey, Montgomery County prosecutors have filed documents to have Peterson arrested after he admitted to using drugs, which would violate his bond conditions.
Peterson admitted that he had “smoked a little weed” before submitting his urine sample, according to the court records.
The Montgomery County District Attorney has asked the judge in his child abuse case to set aside Peterson’s $15,000 bond and have him arrested again.
Carey adds that Peterson will not be arrested on Thursday and Peterson’s attorney, Rusty Hardin, has not been available for comment.
This comes just a day after Peterson’s child-abuse trial was tentatively set for December 1. Hardin is still expected to push for a trial date of November 18, which would give him at least a remote chance of returning to the NFL if he was found not guilty and reinstated.
However, it appears as though the idea of him returning to the Vikings this season could be even more far fetched now that he could be arrested for violating his bond.
