"Idle time is the devil's play."
That would be Gov. Dayton's theory on why so many NFL players, Adrian Peterson in particular, have been under the scrutiny of the law lately.
Peterson faces a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest after a confrontation with an off-duty police officer at a nightclub. Peterson's next court date is August 6.
Gov. Dayton attributes the large number of NFL misconducts to being off about half of the year - much more than other professional athletes.
Dayton went on to comment that an off-duty police officer with no visual identification dressed in plainclothes should not necessarily expect to be treated like an officer of the law.
