Nike drops Adrian Peterson amid legal drama
(KARE/CNN) – Nike is finished with Adrian Peterson.
The sportswear company has been distancing itself from the NFL running back after his indictment for beating one of his children.
A spokesperson told CNN in a written statement, "Our only comment is that Adrian Peterson is no longer a Nike athlete."
Peterson pleaded no contest on Tuesday to misdemeanor reckless assault charges after whipping one of his children with a thin tree branch.
He is suspended from the Minnesota Vikings and is also banned from the team facilities.
