His indictment extends a troubling week for the NFL that began with video surfacing Monday morning of running back Ray Rice punching his then-fiancée in the face during an incident in February in a hotel elevator in Atlantic City.

Sports Radio 610 in Houston obtained a draft of the police report which says Peterson admitted that he did, in his words, “whoop” one of his children last May while the boy was visiting him at his home near Houston.

The punishment happened after Peterson’s son pushed another one of Peterson’s children off of a motorbike video game, the report says.

NFL Orders an Independent Investigation

UPDATE:  NFL Ray Rice Saga

The clock is ticking and Roger Goodell’s mission to preserve the game of professional football integrity is failing.

The NFL Independent InvestigationThe NFL announced late Wednesday that it has ordered an independent investigation into the league’s handling of evidence in the case of former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice.

Former FBI Director Robert Mueller will conduct the investigation and will be overseen by two owners, John Mara of the New York Giants and Dan Rooney of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said in a statement that Commissioner Roger Goodell has promised that Mueller would have access to all league records and have the cooperation of all NFL personnel.

On June 16 Ray Rice told NFL commissioner Roger Goodell that he punched his then-fiancee in a casino elevator, four sources have told “Outside the Lines,” an assertion that contradicts Goodell’s statement this week that “when we met with Ray Rice and his representatives, it was ambiguous about what actually happened.”
