MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A lawsuit filed in Minneapolis says former Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has defaulted on a $2.4 million loan.
Crown Bank says Peterson, who was traded by the New Orleans Saints to the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday, took out the loan in May 2016 and defaulted five months later. The Star Tribune reports Peterson eventually brought the balance down to $594,000 after entering into a forbearance agreement with the Minneapolis bank. The lawsuit says Peterson has failed to meet the bank’s demands and must pay the balance, plus interest.READ MORE: 'Bumpy Ride': Minnesota Legislature Continues Special Session Work, As Deadline Before Shutdown Looms
