    Default Adrian Peterson's 2 year old son has died

    How awful that poor baby

    TMZ SPORTS
    NFL STAR ADRIAN PETERSON
    2-YEAR-OLD SON ATTACKED
    Police Investigating
    EXCLUSIVE DETAILS


    Adrian Peterson's 2-year-old son is currently in critical condition in a South Dakota hospital ... after he was allegedly severely beaten by the man dating the mother of his child, TMZ has learned.

    The Minnesota Vikings running back immediately left his team to be with his son.

    Officials tell us they've arrested the suspect, 27-year-old Joseph Patterson ... who's been charged with aggravated felony assault and battery of an infant.

    According to law enforcement, emergency responders arrived to the apartment where Peterson's son was living at 5:46 PM on Wednesday ... and found the child unresponsive.

    He was rushed to a nearby hospital and medical experts determined the injuries were consistent with abuse.

    Law enforcement sources tell us ... the child suffered severe head injuries.

    Peterson is tight with his son -- back in February, we got video of the two hanging out together during NBA All-Star weekend in Houston.

    If I was AP, the next headline would be "Adrian Peterson arrested on felony assault charges." Any punishment by the law or the NFL, would be completely worth it IMHO. I think child abusers should be taken out behind the wood shed and have their legs broken.

    Now it's being reported it isn't AP's son.

    Where did you hear that?

    I have to think its at least a relative if AP left Vikings practice for it.

    The reports are jumping around right now.

    Update, 11:30 a.m.: City Pages is reporting that the injured child is not Adrian Peterson Jr. We've changed out headline to reflect this. Our original post is below.

    Update, 11:47 a.m.: Here's the latest Argus Leader story on police not confirming identities. "Who the father is does not come into play in this investigation, so we're not going to be releasing any information as far as that goes."

    Update, 11:55 a.m.: TMZ is now saying it's not Adrian Peterson Jr. (we've changed our photo) but is one of Peterson's children. His official biography lists a 9-year-old daughter, but police have confirmed the victim is a 2-year-old.

    I read a tweet that said AP was supposed to give a statement after practice, so maybe things will clear up a little bit then.

    Son of Adrian Peterson critically hurt


    A 2-year-old in critical condition in South Dakota is the son of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, the player's father told the Pioneer Press on Friday.

    "We are asking for prayers and for respect for our family as we deal with this tragic situation," Nelson Peterson told the newspaper.

    Joseph Patterson, 27, is being held on two felony counts of aggravated battery of an infant and aggravated assault domestic.

    Peterson did not attend practice Thursday due to personal reasons. He is expected to address the media Friday afternoon.

    Here's how this should be handled.

    AP and this ***-hat in a closed off room for 30 minutes. If they both walk out, great. If only AP walks out, great.

    Some things are more important than football. Some people are just plain scum. I will leave it at that...

    I agree with above poster, I feel bad for Carolina. Hope AP goes off for 200 yards and a couple of TD's. Not that it will make him feel any better..

    What a screwed up situation. A 2 year old?!?!?!

    Good heavens what at terrible situation. If someone ever did that to my wife or kid I'd be the next one going to prison for the rest of my life.

    There is a special place in hell for child abusers. I hope AP wasn't aware of any signs of abuse or he'll never forgive himself. I've seen that situation before and its just crushing.

    I don't understand how someone can do that to a 2 year old child. I just don't get it
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Patterson was charged over the assault of a three-year-old boy in 2012.

    The mother of his child had asked for protection orders twice, claiming he choked and punched her, threatened her with a knife and held her in the bedroom against her will, according to records.

    In 2012, Patterson was charged with simple assault against the mother and was ordered to undergo family violence training and to stay away from her until completing it.

    The accused man, Joseph Robert Patterson has a son with another Sioux Falls woman, court records show.

    No matter who was the father of a child, how can ANYONE beat a 2 year old to death?

    Seriously now. Why would anyone even lay a hand on a poor infant? And even if they did how can they keep hitting it until it can no longer move?

    No, I seriously don't get this.

    Cause as I said above, there are sick people in this world. I know we can't possibly imagine there are people who can do such things to an infant but unfortunately there are.

    Hope that scum suffers a brutal death in prison before he gets to the electric chair.

    Adrian Peterson: 'It's devastating'


    Adrian Peterson's 2-year-old son died from injuries after alleged assault.
    Tags: Adrian Peterson, son
    EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was away from the team Wednesday to attend his son's funeral in South Dakota, he said Thursday.


    I was planning on seeing him. I had a talk with his mom, and we got some things together as far as financially helping her. Unfortunately, this situation took place.

    -- Adrian Peterson, on learning he had 2-year-old son, who died Friday,
    only two months ago
    Peterson confirmed that he found out two months ago that he was the father of the 2-year-old boy, who died Friday from injuries sustained in an alleged aggravated assault.

    Peterson said he had been supporting the boy's mother financially and had been in contact with her to make plans to meet his son.

    "I was planning on seeing him," Peterson said. "I had a talk with his mom, and we got some things together as far as financially helping her.

    "Unfortunately, this situation took place. It's devastating. A lot of people won't ever understand the situation that I'm in and see it the way I'm seeing the situation. It's tough, but I'm able to deal with that and got a good supporting cast around me that's been supporting me through this tough time."

    The boy's mother was in a relationship with Joseph Patterson, who was arrested on charges of aggravated assault and is being held on $750,000 bail. Lincoln County attorney Tom Wollman said Tuesday he could ask a grand jury to consider additional charges in light of the boy's death.

    Peterson said he does not expect to return to South Dakota to be involved with the police investigation.

    "I have the contacts that I need to be able to stay involved," he said.

    Peterson said he has not paid much attention to tabloid reports about how many children he has, adding, "People are going to speculate. They're going to say this and that.

    "I can't let that bother me. I've been too focused on trying to mourn and be there for his mother and take in the loss of my son. I haven't been able to focus on anything else outside of that."

    Not to pick on you specifically, but there's a lot of people in this thread who are bemoaning the violent world we live in and then saying hateful and violent things towards the guy who killed the kid. I'm not saying his actions weren't incredibly reprehensible, but I imagine he probably didn't have a great childhood and probably didn't benefit from a great education or positive role models.

    I hope he regrets what he did, serves his time in prison, turns his life around, and can eventually safely reenter the community and become a contributing member of society. That sounds a lot better than a brutal death to me.

    All that said, RIP to Mr. Peterson's kid, and I feel terrible for him and his family. That's the real issue here.
    That'll do.

    Yeah because he was the only one who had tough upbringing? Guess what...

    What are you doing exactly? Equating my "wish" him to rot in prison or die in it to an infant killer? Oooh does that make me a hypocrite? So be it. Couldn't give a rat's *** in this case! He deserves everything that will come to his way.

    I believe in second chances but not for people who have killed a baby (deliberately) . Simple as that. Cause when they get out, they will cause harm again.
