Seattle Seahawks running back free agent Adrian Peterson was taken off a United flight from Los Angeles to Houston and taken to jail after a ‘verbal and physical’ altercation with his wife.
We’re told the plane actually had to turn around and link up with the gate again after an apparent verbal and physical altercation between a man and woman.
Peterson was taken into custody … After her husband was hauled off the plane, we’re told the flight was able to depart as planned … which included Ashley, who stayed on board with the rest of the passengers.
Reportedly he “grabbed her wedding ring and scratched her finger” and was charged with felony domestic violence on Sunday.
According to a family spokesperson,
Adrian and his wife Ashley had a verbal argument on a flight, and he was removed from the plane. This is a private misunderstanding between husband and wife and we anticipate it will all be resolved shortly.”
Financial and parental stress strain a relationship. Emily Oster suggests that parents should make a list of all of the things that a partner does for the household, with a thank-you, and attach it to a box of chocolates.
