More Details Emerge From Alleged Beating In Las Vegas By Saints RB Alvin Kamara
On Sunday, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police detectives announced the arrest of Alvin Kamara of the New Orleans Saints after someone reported being battered at a nightclub.
After being taken into ocustody without incident, Kamara was booked into the Clark County Detention Center for battery resulting in substantial bodily harm. The victim reported the incident which took place in the 3500 block of South Las Vegas Blvd.
Las Vegas police say a person at a hospital on Saturday reported having been beaten at a nightclub and detectives determined the attack involved Kamara. He would play in the Pro Bowl and then get arrested at Allegiant Stadium after the game.
Per ProFootballTalk, Kamara spent Sunday night in police custody and remains in custody on a $5,000 bail. He has seemingly posted that bail and is scheduled to appear in court on Monday at 1:30 p.m. Vegas time.
It has since been reported, via NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, that Kamara and three of his friends got into an argument with a man coming out of an elevator. Kamara allegedly put his hand on the man, whose name is said to be Darnelle Green. When the man pushed it off, Kamara proceeded to punch him several times, fracturing his orbital bone and knocking him out. Then, while Green was on the ground, Kamara and his buddies continued kicking him before leaving the scene.
A conviction on the charge could result in a sentence of one to five years in state prison.
Kamara, a five-time Pro Bowl selection, had 898 yards rushing, 439 yards receiving and nine total touchdowns in the 2021 season for the Saints, who selected him in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
This investigation is still ongoing.
