Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson could be arrested again after admitting he used drugs, which would violate his bond conditions, reports FOX 9 in Minneapolis-St. Paul.

According to the report, Montgomery County prosecutors have filed documents to have Peterson arrested again after Peterson admitted to a staffer that he “smoked a little weed” before giving a urine sample on Wednesday.

The district attorney has reportedly asked the judge to set aside Peterson’s $15,000 bond.

FOX 9 reports that there likely won’t be any action on Thursday, because the judge presiding over Peterson’s case has a hearing scheduled for Friday morning.

Peterson was arrested and indicted in September on charges of reckless or negligent injury to a child after authorities said he hit his 4-year-old son with a switch.

A tentative trial date for the week of Dec. 1 was set on Wednesday. On the same day, Peterson appeared in a Montgomery County, Texas, courtroom, but did not enter a plea.

The 29-year-old faces up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine if convicted on the charges. He agreed to be placed on the Commissioner’s Exempt list while his investigation is ongoing.
