The son of Vikings great Adrian Peterson has been beaten by his mother’s boyfriend and is in critical condition in the hospital. Peterson had to leave the Vikings practice facility on Thursday to take care of a personal matter. No one knew at the time his son had been beaten.
An arrest has been made in the case and the police have,27-year-old Joseph Patterson in custody and have charged him with,aggravated felony assault and battery of an infant.
Reports say this relationship between Peterson’s ex and Patterson is relatively knew and she was not at home at the time of the alleged beating.
According to reports, the police responded to a call and when they arrived they found the 2-year-old child, unresponsive. The child was then rushed to a nearby hospital where experts determined his injuries were consistent with abuse.
What kind of sick person beats a little kid like this? They should let Adrian Peterson spend some time alone with this guy. Better yet the entire Vikings team should be allowed to spend some time alone with this guy.
Please pray for the entire Adrian Peterson family and his 2-year-old-son. He is going to need prayer and time to recover.
