TMZ 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.
First off I would like to say that the thoughts and prayers of everyone here at SportSmasher.com are with Adrian Peterson during this tragedy. We like to keep things light and fun here at SportSmasher.com, but this horrific story that happened to one of the best players in the NFL needed to be addressed, so first off we hope that Peterson’s son makes a full and speedy recovery.
It’s situations like this where we should have the death penalty, and it should be quick, because I don’t want to share the planet with a scumbag like Joseph Patterson. How any man could put their hands on a two year old child and beat the poor kid until he is unresponsive is beyond me. Joseph Patterson walks around calling himself a man, while he relentlessly beats a defenseless infant, this guy is the absolute lowest form of human life. Do yo know how I would punish Joseph Patterson? Lock him in a room with Adrian Peterson for an hour, let him know how it feels to be beaten within an inch of his life by someone so much bigger and stronger than him, when he has no defense and no way of stopping it. There is a special, deep pit of hell for assholes like this, I hope he gets cornholed in prison till the day he dies of a ruptured anus, then rots with serial killers and child molesters where he belongs.
Adrian Peterson, football is not important right now, your son’s recovery is. Get well soon, kid.
UPDATE: In sadder news, Adrian Peterson’s son has passed away, Rest In Peace, little man. Everything about this story is terrible, everything I said above stands, get Joseph Patterson off of the planet immediately.
UPDATE: According To @WindyCityIggy this is Joseph Patterson, the murderer, who needs to be executed for such a horrific crime:
Rest In Peace. What a tragedy.
