Peterson's Son Fights Allegations of Improper Gun Storage for Dad

Posted:

Departmental allegations that Drew Peterson’s police officer son improperly held several guns for his father after Stacy Peterson’s disappearance in 2007 are being refuted by him.

Oak Brook police have placed Stephen Peterson, 31, on paid leave while they investigate his recent court testimony that he took up to three weapons from his father after Drew Peterson's wife, Stacy, vanished in 2007.

Stephen Peterson's attorney called the police probe "vindictive" and said his client did nothing improper.

"It should be abundantly clear that as soon as he became aware that the guns were of interest to the State Police, [Stephen] Peterson gave the guns to the appropriate authorities and fully cooperated with their investigation," attorney Tamara Cummings said in a written statement Wednesday.
