               injury to a child by a Montgomery County grand jury.

Peterson had been under investigation by the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office for punishing his son with a switch, attorney Rusty Hardin confirms.

Brett Ligon, the Montgomery County District Attorney, spoke with HPD chief Charles McClelland and has requested he launch a criminal investigation into who leaked the full police report and photos of the minor child victim. Ligon has also requested the Texas Rangers assist in that investigation.

"As vigorously as we investigate and prosecute child abuse cases,we will use the same zeal to find who is releasing information on the minor child," said Ligon.

A warrant has been issued for his arrest. Peterson is expected to surrender and post bond, but the timing for that is unclear.
