Former NFL star Adrian Peterson arrested at Los Angeles airport “after attacking wife in flight”.

Football star Adrian Peterson was arrested by police at the Los Angeles airport after he allegedly attacked his wife on the plane as it taxied to the runway, leaving her bruised and causing the plane to turn around.

Peterson, 36, who played for the Seattle Seahawks this season before his contract expired in January, was arrested Sunday afternoon on charges of domestic violence. The incident is said to have left a physical mark on his wife Ashley Brown.

Brown, with whom he has two children, stayed on the plane after Peterson took off and continued on to Houston, where they live.

“Earlier today, Adrian and his wife Ashley had a verbal altercation during a flight and he was taken off the plane,” Peterson’s rep told TMZ.

“This is a personal misunderstanding between husband and wife and we expect it to be resolved soon.”

Peterson and Brown were in Los Angeles for a pre-Superbowl party.

The Texas sports star played college football in Oklahoma, where he met Brown.

He was selected seventh overall by the Minnesota Vikings in 2007 and was named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.

In 2012, he was named Most Valuable Player along with others, and in 2015 became the oldest running back to make the All-Pro First Team at age 30.

However, his life was also marked by tragedy and scandal.

Peterson held his older brother Brian after the nine-year-old boy was hit by a drunk driver while the family was living in Dallas. Peterson was only a few feet away when his brother, who died shortly thereafter in the hospital, was wounded.

His father Nelson was arrested when Peterson was 13 and charged with laundering money for the drug trade. He was sentenced to eight years in prison.

Before marrying Brown in 2014, Peterson had six children with six different women.

In 2013, he learned that he had a two-year-old son, but only met the boy the day before he was killed by his mother’s boyfriend, Tyrese Ruffin. Ruffin was found guilty of second-degree murder in September 2015 and received a life sentence.

In September 2014, he was charged with child abuse after he was seen beating his four-year-old son with a tree branch.

Peterson was suspended by the NFL for the final 15 games of the season.

“I’m fighting,” Peterson told Sports Illustrated in January 2016. – I am human.

“When I look back at my life and the personal things I’ve experienced, it’s like when you live a sinful life, bad things happen, no matter how much God you have in your life.”

In December, Peterson became the first player in NFL history to score a touchdown on six different teams.
