Looks like Adrian Peterson is trying to prove he is innocent and prove a point at the same time.
According to espn.com via Adam Schefter Peterson has hired prominent and well-known defense attorney Rusty Hardin.
Hardin recently helped former major league baseball star Roger Clemens beat a charge of lying about his use of performance enhancing drugs to congress.
Peterson is adamant he did nothing wrong and took to twitter to plead his case. Peterson tweeted “‘A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.'”
There are conflicting reports in the matter but Houston Police continue to say that Peterson was asked several time to leave the club.
Peterson was reportedly subdued after police say he pushed an off-duty officer and “assumed an aggressive stance.”
