Adrian Peterson’s 2-year-old son dead, Joseph Patterson arrested

A 2-year-old boy, the son of Minnesota Vikings superstar Adrian Peterson, died Friday of injuries he suffered after allegedly being abused, police said.

Adrian PetersonSouth Dakota police said Joseph Robert Patterson, age 27, has been charged with aggravated battery of an infant and aggravated assault. If convicted on the charges, both felonies, Patterson could face up to 40 years in prison and an $80,000 fine.

Prosecutors are considering filing additional charges against Patterson now that the child has passed away, according to police.

Adrian Peterson took to Twitter to express his gratitude to his family, fans and the “fraternity of brothers” in the NFL for their support as the news broke.

“God Bless everyone and thank u so much,” he wrote.

Police spokesman Sam Clemens said Patterson called 911 to report that the toddler had choked, become unresponsive and needed to go to a hospital.

Authorities determined that the child had suffered injuries to his head consistent with abuse, according to Clemens.

Police said Patterson, whom they described as the boyfriend of the injured child’s mother, was the only other person in the residence at the time.

The mother is not under investigation.

    SINCE THE CHILD WAS TWO-YEARS OLD, OBVIOUSLY, THE MOTHER WAS RECEIVING CHILD SUPPORT FROM Adrian Peterson – WHO MAKES MILLIONS. SO, IF THE MOTHER HAS SENSE – THE FIRST CHANCE SHE GETS – SHE WILL KILL Joseph Robert Patterson FOR DESTROYING HER “GOLDEN GOOSE.”

    I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF A NEGRO FEMALE WHO HAS A BABY WITH A NEGRO MALE WITH MONEY AND WANTS THAT BABY DEAD. SO, Mr. Patterson MUST HAVE ACTED ALONE. IF THE MOTHER IS LATER CHARGED, EVERY NEGRO IN THE NATION WILL TRULY BELIEVE SHE IS INSANE.

      OUTSIDE OF SEX, I DO NOT WANT NEGRO MALES TO SUCCEED; BUT, WHEN IT COMES TO SEX, I AM A WILLING PARTNER WITH NEGRO MALES. TODAY, I WILL BE WATCHING National Football League. I AM QUITE SURE Jay Glazer of Fox’s NFL Sunday WILL REPORT Mr. Peterson WILL NOT PLAY.

      SINCE IT IS FOOTBALL SUNDAY, I AM THINKING ABOUT THE NEGRO-MALE ATHLETES WHO ARE IN CHAOS; AND, THE EVIDENCE IS EVERYWHERE – THIS Patterson Story REMINDS ME OF THE SITUATION WITH Lorenzen Wright, WHO WAS MURDERED, SUSPICIOUSLY. [Mr. Wright was a former University of Memphis basketball player who was a Cleveland Cavalier at the time of his death. I will always believe his ex-wife, Sherra, killed him; when Sherra was interviewed by Memphis media-outlets, she appeared to be hiding something]. AND THE LIST GOES ON – Nate Robinson [an Oklahoma City Thunder] ARRESTED FOR URINATING ON A SIDEWALK IN WHITE PLAINS, NEW YORK; Titus Young [a former Detroit Lion/St. Louis Ram] ARRESTED TWICE ON THE SAME DAY (DUI/burglary); AND, OF COURSE, Orenthal James Simpson. SINCE blacks AND browns ARE LUMPED TOGETHER, I CAN ALSO MENTION Aaron Hernandez [former New England Patriot and suspected murderer] AND Ndamukong Suh[a Detroit Lion], WHO IS CONSTANTLY BEING FINED FOR HIS UNCONTROLLABLE VIOLENT-URGES ON THE PLAYING FIELD.

      ALTHOUGH I DO NOT KNOW FOR SURE, I BELIEVE ALL – OR, MOST – OF THESE MALES WERE TRICKED BY NEGRO/COLORED FEMALES WHO UTILIZED PREGNANCY IN ORDER TO TRAP THEIR “MONEY MAN.” Afrocentric blacks ARE IN CHAOS BECAUSE THEY WILL NEVER REALIZE THE ABILITY TO PURCHASE EXPENSIVE TOYS WILL NOT WASH-AWAY THE SHAME OF SLAVERY/”Jim Crow.”
