TMZ Sports reports exclusively:

Sources connected to Peterson tell us … the alleged victim is a male child from Minnesota who was visiting Adrian back in May at AP’s home in Texas.

We’re told the child returned home to his mother in Minn. who noticed injuries and took the child to a doctor. A short time later, the doctor contacted authorities in Texas to report Adrian.

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.

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
