Minnesota Vikings' running back Adrian Peterson's son was killed in 2013, allegedly by Joseph Robert Patterson - a boyfriend of the boy's mother.
Astonishingly, Patterson was freed on $750,000 bond while he awaited trial. That waiting period came to an end today, as Patterson was arrested for allegedly kidnapping the child's mother.
Patterson had been under strict instructions not to contact Peterson or any family members of his son, Tyrese.
Patterson was apprehended in Sioux Falls, South Dakota on Tuesday morning and is now being held without bail.
There is still no trial date set for Patterson's murder trial.
