LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Prosecutors in NFL running back Adrian Peterson's child abuse case are seeking his arrest for a possible drug-related violation of his bond, according to court papers filed on Thursday.

Peterson, a suspended Minnesota Vikings player who has been accused of beating his 4-year-old son with a tree branch, allegedly told a drug-testing administrator on Wednesday he had smoked marijuana before submitting to a urinalysis test, the court papers said.
