Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was arrested early Saturday morning in Houston.

KHOU 11 News in Houston first reported that Peterson was arrested at 2:30 a.m. for resisting arrest.

A source told NBC Sports’ Pro Football Talk that Peterson’s arrest was captured by surveillance cameras and several people witnessed the incident in which Peterson reportedly got into an altercation with officers after refusing to leave the club.

According to the report, police arrived at the club at closing time and instructed the patrons to leave. Peterson, who was in the club with his wife and some family members, wanted to get some water first, but an officer ordered him to leave. Words were then exchanged between Peterson and the officer. Peterson eventually went to exit the club along with a bouncer.

It is unclear what Peterson was initially arrested for, but it was reported that it took multiple officers to take him down to complete the arrest.

He was booked at the Central Jail for resisting arrest and later released on a $1,000 bond.
