A Mascot Showed Up At Adrian Peterson's Court Hearing Today

Adrian Peterson made his first appearance in a Montgomery County (Texas) court today on the charge of reckless or negligent injury to one of his sons. Not much happened. The indefinitely suspended running back didn't even enter a formal plea. The prosecutor said he would file a motion asking for a new judge after Judge Kelly Case allegedly called lawyers in the case "media whores."

And this person showed up.


Whoever it was even took the time to clarify the type of animal, saying it was a wildcat, the mascot for Palestine High School in Texas where Peterson played football. That's also the school where a former teammate says he and Peterson got smacked with a solid-oak paddle several times by the team's defensive coordinator.
