Adrian Peterson's 2-Year Old Son Severely Beaten By Mother's Boyfriend

Crazy story out of Minnesota. Vikings RB Adrian Peterson had been away from the team because of a family emergency and it seems that TMZ has uncovered some of the details to why Peterson is away.

Adrian Peterson’s 2-year old son is currently in critical condition in a South Dakota hospital after he was allegedly beaten by the mother’s boyfriend.

Here is a little from the report on TMZ:

Officials tell us they’ve arrested the suspect, 27-year-old Joseph Patterson … who’s been charged with aggravated felony assault and battery of an infant.

According to law enforcement, emergency responders arrived to the apartment where Peterson’s son was living at 5:46 PM on Wednesday … and found the child unresponsive.

He was rushed to a nearby hospital and medical experts determined the injuries were consistent with abuse.

Law enforcement sources tell us … the child suffered severe head injuries.

Prayers out to Adrian Peterson and to his son. This story makes me sick.
