Alvin Kamara allegedly punched a man while he was unconscious on the ground at a Las Vegas nightclub, leading to Kamara’s arrest Sunday, according to police documents.
The New Orleans Saints running back was one of four men involved in the alleged battery, and the four are alleged to have stomped on the victim approximately 23 times and punched the victim approximately nine times, police said. The victim suffered an orbital fracture in the incident, police said, via WLOX.
According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, police were called to a hospital Saturday where the unnamed person reported being attacked by Kamara at a nightclub in the 3500 block of South Las Vegas Boulevard.
“Court documents obtained on Monday show the attack happened as the victim, identified as Darnell Greene, was leaving the club. Detectives say Greene was waiting for the elevator with a large group of people. Once the elevator doors opened, Greene says Kamara put his hand on his chest, stopping him from walking into the elevator.
Greene says he pushed Kamara’s hand off his chest, the document states, and was pushed back, before being hit and kicked by multiple people until he lost consciousness.”
Kamara reportedly told detectives Greene called one of his friends ugly and he later said “I’ll whoop your a** too.” The document says Kamara saw a fight break out, saw Greene getting punched, and threw a “couple” punches of his own. When asked why he punched Greene, Kamara reportedly told detectives he thought Greene was running away and had done something to his group, so he chased and punched Greene several times.
There is said to be video on what happened as well.
The NFL issued a statement that said, “We are aware of the matter but will decline further comment at this time.”
