The National Football League (NFL) on November 18 suspended running back Adrian Peterson for the whole season for pleading “no contest” in a domestic violence child abuse charge, an L.A. Times article stated.
The league reportedly imposed the harsh punishment against the Minnesota Vikings star after his nine-week paid suspension for punishing his 4-year-old son using a tree switch. According to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Peterson will not receive pay from his current suspension. Peterson pleaded no contest in Texas on November 4 to lessen his charge for beating his son. Peterson, who was put under probation, was ordered to pay $4,000 and undergo community service.
