Prosecutors have again agreed to push back the court date for Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson to face a misdemeanor resisting arrest charge.
A pretrial hearing was originally scheduled for July 13, and it was initially moved to Monday. Attorney Rusty Hardin says hearings will now be held Sept. 27 and Nov. 15 before Judge Natalie Fleming.
Hardin says prosecutors need more time to review evidence and conduct interviews about the July 7 incident in which Peterson was arrested outside a Houston night club.
Dressed in a gray suit with a blue polka-dot tie, Peterson chatted with defendants and signed autographs in the courtroom Monday morning as Hardin talked with attorneys and Fleming. Peterson did not speak to reporters outside the courtroom before he and Hardin boarded an elevator.
