The 2-year-old son of NFL star Adrian Peterson is in critical condition at a Sioux Falls, South Dakota hospital after his mom’s boyfriend allegedly beat him.
Officials tell HipHollywood that they have arrested the suspect, 27-year-old Joseph Patterson, on charges of aggravated felony assault and battery of an infant. Law enforcement officials confirm that the child suffered severe head injuries.
If convicted, Patterson could face 40 years in prison and $80,000 in fines.
The Minnesota Vikings running back has left his team to be with his son. Our thoughts are with him and family.
HipHollywood has learned that the child photographed here with Peterson is not the son that has been hospitalized.
