NFL star Adrian Peterson insists ... he did NOT resist arrest last week outside a Houston nightclub after allegedly shoving an off-duty police officer -- claiming, "I'm 200% innocent."

The Minnesota Vikings running back just spoke inside a Houston courthouse, telling reporters, "I didn't push, shove, touch anything or anyone, especially an officer."

He added, "I definitely don't have a problem with the Houston PD. This involves two individual officers that I have an issue with. Once everything is settled, the truth will come out."

Peterson was at court this morning for his arraignment on the resisting arrest charge -- but the arraignment was postponed to August.

On his way out, Peterson was asked if the incident was a run-of-the-mill drinking situation that got out of hand -- and Peterson responded, "Yeah, pretty much."

As for the off-duty officers involved in the arrest -- Peterson's lawyer says they were all in uniform at the time.

Actually, Adrian, you are guilty. . . .what were you doing in a bar at that time in the morning? Why did you fail to obey a police order? I hope you go to jail. . .

One of my pet peeves is the dumbass use of something can be over 100%. When will people learn how stupid they sound when they say that.

God, athletes are stupid. Really, it tops out at 100. It shouldn't be that hard to grasp. Hope he gives his defense 110%.

Just 200%? Hmm, I'm not sure then. I mean if he was 300% or maybe the full 500% then perhaps....

What were the off-duty police officers doing in a bar in their uniforms? That's against policy. Especially if they're working as security guards. I don't think Adrian Peterson has done anything wrong. Just because you're a police officer in one job doesn't give you the right to arrest people at your other job.

I've wanted to punch a few cops, didn't, they have that gun and stick and taser, so, you know, I decided to let them off easy.
