Viking running back Adrian Peterson tweeted Sunday, "Thank you for waiting for the facts. Truth will surface".  Peterson also quoted Winston Churchill writing: "A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on."

Peterson was arrested early Saturday morning for resisting arrest.  Police say Peterson and his group didn't leave a bar in Houston when asked to at 2am because of closing time. Police say Peterson shoved a police officer and was detained by multiple police officers and jailed.  He posted bail shortly after.

The 6'1 217 pound Peterson is recovering from major knee surgery and may not start the season on the active roster.
