Adrian Peterson has lawyered up in a big way, hiring prominent attorney Rusty Hardin to represent him in the wake of his arrest for doing something wrong in a Houston bar. If the name Rusty Hardin sounds familiar, it should. He was the guy who represented disgraced baseball legend Roger Clemens. Now he will help Adrian clear his name (if indeed the Houston cops even want to charge him with anything beyond some tiny insignificant misdemeanor).
As Adrian promised on Twitter Sunday, the truth will come out about what really happened early Saturday morning at that watering hole. And then he invoked Winston Churchill cause Winston Churchill was famous and he said something that sounds really deep and Adrian wants everyone to think he’s deep.
Incidentally, a source told NFL.com Monday morning that if Adrian receives punishment from the Houston courts at all it will likely be a fine. The source also says the case should be adjudicated quickly. So Adrian needs Rusty Hardin for what now?
