Child Protective Services confirms they are working on a case involving Peterson and say the alleged victim is an 11-year-old boy.

Twitter is abuzz with talk that Peterson hit the boy, his son, with a switch.

Arrest of Adrian Peterson (reported by @MarkBermanFox26) stems from the disciplining of a son with a switch, source says. He’s been indicted

Adrian Peterson spanked his kid with a switch, so what? My grandparents used to do the same thing to me. Kids need discipline.

Adrian Peterson has been indicted for whoopin' his son with a switch. If that's a crime, my parents should be doin' 25 to life. Merica.

@Whoispauljr Adrian Peterson was probably just disciplining his kids. Most parents these days have forgotten how to do that.

So Adrian Peterson beat his kid with a switch? My grandparents used to beat the fire out of me with switches.

— Steelers Depot (@Steelersdepot) September 12, 2014

Adrian Peterson is being indicted for allegedly using a switch on his kid. My grandmother committed thousands of crimes over decades then.

Having the gov't define whipping your kid with a switch as "child abuse" is nanny state insanity. #AdrianPeterson

Tearjerker: Student’s pic of dad’s return from Iraq wins Google doodle contest

Get ready to have your heartstrings tugged.!/johnnyA99/status/337245233819561984
Sabrina Brady, whose heartwarming and emotional doodle is featured on the Google homepage today, won the 2013 U.S. Doodle 4 Google competition with her “Coming Home” illustration. She is a twelfth-grade student in Sparta, Wisconsin.

Sabrina’s doodle stood out in the crowd; it tells the story of her reunion with her father as he returned from an 18 month deployment in Iraq. Her creative use of the Google letters to illustrate this heartfelt moment clearly resonated with voters across the country and all of us at Google.

In addition to seeing her artwork on the Google homepage, Sabrina—who is in 12th grade at Sparta High School—will receive a $30,000 college scholarship, a Chromebook computer and a $50,000 technology grant for her school.

We’ve taken Google to task before, but this time, the company got it right. Thank you, Sabrina!!/jeffemanuel/status/337517127684722688

The doodle has special meaning for this Twitter user today:

Wow, it’s really dusty in here.
