Adrian Peterson is in the news after an incident at Houston nightclub Live at Bayou Place last week. The Vikings running back was detained by off-duty police at the nightclub on a charge of resisting arrest. According to reports, Peterson was drunk and disorderly, shoving an officer at last call, then requiring three officers to restrain him. The 27-year-old, who has hired Rusty Hardin (of Roger Clemens fame) as his attorney, is the latest in a long history of athletes getting into trouble at a nightclub. Here is a look at some other memorable incidents.
