The surveillance video that supposedly shows the entire incident leading to Adrian Peterson's arrest early Saturday morning at a Houston nightclub has yet to surface.

But has obtained a video that shows some sort of altercation, apparently as off-duty police officers attempted to place the Minnesota Vikings' star running back under arrest.

Not much else is clear from the video (seen below), which was taken as bouncers from Live at Bayou Place tried to clear out the crowd.

Peterson, 27, spent about 8 hours in custody and has been charged with resisting arrest, a Class A misdemeanor.

Police say he pushed an off-duty officer. One eyewitness says the officers were the aggressors. The club manager says Peterson was heavily intoxicated. An initial court appearance is set for Friday.
