Black and Blue all over: Peterson's license

Some of you have asked why Minnesota tailback Adrian Peterson wasn’t charged with reckless driving after police clocked him driving 109 miles per hour Saturday night in suburban Minneapolis. I’m not sure I have the answer to that, but according to the Star Tribune, Peterson will lose his driver's license for six months unless he successfully challenges the ticket.

Minnesota state laws require an automatic revocation of license for driving over 100. Peterson, who was driving on a highway that carries a speed limit of 55 miles per hour, has 21 days to challenge the ticket. He told the Associated Press on Wednesday that he wasn’t driving that fast.

If the Vikings plan any discipline, it won’t be made public. Peterson started last Sunday’s game against Chicago.
