Adrian Peterson's life is just simply getting worse and worse after it was revealed that prosecutors in Montgomery, Texas, have filed paperwork in an attempt to get Adrian Peterson's bail revoked.
Peterson has been indicted on charges of child abuse after it was revealed that the Minnesota Vikings running back had beaten his four-year-old son with a tree branch, with things getting even worse for Peterson on Friday.
Threat of arrest
According to reports, prosecutors want Adrian Peterson re-arrested because he told a drug tester that he had recently smoked marijuana prior to taking a urinalysis on Wednesday.
Peterson is believed to have told the drug tester that he had 'smoked a little weed' prior to the test. Currently on a bond while he awaits his fate, Peterson is under common terms that include not taking any illegal drugs.
"In light of this statement, and the fact that it was made during the urinalysis testing process, and the term 'weed' is a common slang term for marijuana, the state argues that the defendant has smoked marijuana while on bond,'' the district attorney's office wrote, according to ESPN.
The state of affairs
Peterson is currently free on a $15,000 bond on a charge of felony child abuse. There has been a tentative trial date set for December, but recent developments regarding the judge of the case mean that this could be pushed back.
Prosecutors want the judge hearing the case to be recused because of previous difficulties with high profile cases and because of remarks the judge made about attorneys being "media whores".
Peterson is currently deactivated from the Vikings roster because of the charges, with the Vikings stating that they will let the legal process play itself out. It remains unlikely that Peterson will play again during the 2014 NFL season, unless he somehow manages to reach a plea deal, which is unlikely at this stage.
