Adrian Peterson’s Brother Busted For Drugs In Home AP Pays For
Ashton Stevenson, the brother of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was arrested and being investigated on the suspicion of drug dealing.
A detective posing as a FedEx driver delivered a package containing marijuana to Stevenson’s Eden Prairie, Minnesota apartment. The police later returned with a search warrant and arrested Peterson’s brother after finding a small amount of marijuana on a scale. The delivered package of marijuana was not addressed to Stevenson and when the police returned to search his home it was unopened so he has avoided drug charges, but is still under investigation.
This is not Stevenson’s first run in with the law. He was previously arrested on drug charges in Texas.
The fact that he never opened the package is what sticks out to me. Maybe he was just taking it for someone else. If you get a package in the mail that you know has weed in it, wouldn’t you open it? 100 percent of people would, which leads me to believe that Ashton was grabbing the package for someone else.
