Order of protection filed against Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson



By RYAN GORMAN

An order of protection has been issued against Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson after he was indicted last week for beating his young son with a switch.

The Hennepin County Attorney issued the order Friday afternoon, a source who declined to be named because he was not authorized to speak on the matter told AOL News.

It does not bar Peterson, 30, from seeing his four-year-old son, but does require court-supervision for any visits, the source explained. Physical discipline of any kind is forbidden.

The order is for 90-days but is technically open-ended because it can be renewed at the court's discretion.

This latest blow to Peterson came as NFL Commissioner gave a press conference regarding the league's new domestic and sexual violence policies.

It came exactly one week after a Texas jury indicted Peterson on a single charge of injury to a child, and six days after he turned himself in to authorities.

Peterson has admitted to beating the boy with a tree branch but has steadfastly insisted he is not a child abuser.

He is currently on paid leave from the team while awaiting trial.
