Minnesota Governor: Vikings’ Peterson should be suspended

FILE - In this Sept. 7, 2014, file photo, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson warms up for an NFL football game against the St. Louis Rams in St. Louis. The Vikings benched Peterson for Sunday's game after his attorney said he had been indicted by a Texas grand jury on a charge of child abuse. Attorney Rusty Hardin says the charge accuses Peterson of using a branch, or switch, to spank his son. He says Peterson has cooperated with authorities and "used his judgment as a parent to discipline his son." Hardin says Peterson regrets the incident but never intended to harm the boy.

Gov. Mark Dayton called Peterson's actions "a public embarrassment" to the Vikings and the state of Minnesota. Vikings Sponsorship suspended & Petersen's court date moved.
