Alvin Kamara isn’t the the only NFL player who is finding himself in trouble with the law. In fact, this player was with him when it happened.
Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Chris Lammons is a wanted suspect in a beating in Las Vegas involving New Orleans Saints player Alvin Kamara.
The victim in the case stated he was leaving Drai’s After Hours on February 5, when multiple people began kicking and hitting him. The victim reportedly suffered a broken eye socket from the alleged punches of Kamara, Lammons and others.
Kamara was the first one to be arrested outside Allegiant Stadium and is currently facing charges of battery along with Lammons and the two other suspects. Darren Young and Percy Harris were booked Monday on suspicion of conspiracy to commit battery and battery resulting in substantial bodily harm. Young and Harris since have posted bail.
“Alvin Kamara has gained a well-deserved reputation for being a hard-working and community minded individual,” Kamara’s attorneys said in a statement.
“The recent Las Vegas allegations are not consistent with who Mr. Kamara has shown himself to be in both his public and private life. Therefore, we are conducting our own investigation into all the circumstances and individuals associated with this matter to determine both the facts and motivations of all involved.”
The four men alleged to have been involved in the battery were reported to have stomped on the victim approximately 23 times and punched the victim nine times, police said. The victim suffered a fractured bone in his eye socket.
