Peterson is charged with causing multiple injuries to a child which a tree branch. His 4-year-old son pushed one of Peterson’s other sons off of a motorbike video game. He wanted to punish the 4-year-old, so he grabbed a tree branch, which is being referred to as a “switch” and hit the child repeatedly.

This cause was thrown out in the first grand jury, before the second grand jury filing the indictment. Peterson says that he was punishing the kid, like he was punished when he was growing up.

According to CBS Houston, Peterson added that if he felt like he was “really wrong for what I did, or had any ill intent, there’s no way I would have let him get on that plane.” He went on to say, “I have nothing to hide, but I also understand when a child has marks like that on his leg, they have to report that.”
