Las Vegas police have now arrested three other men just days after Saints star Alvin Kamara was arrested for felony battery in connection with the alleged beating of a man in Las Vegas during Pro Bowl weekend.
Darrin Young and Percy Harris have since turned themselves in and booked on battery resulting in substantial bodily harm.
The Saints running back was arrested at Raiders stadium soon after the Pro Bowl ended on suspicion of attacking a man as they were leaving Drai’s at The Cromwell on the Las Vegas Strip. An arrest report alleges that three others joined Kamara in stomping on the man’s face, chest and legs.
The victim told police he remembered the 26-year-old running back put his hand on his chest before the alleged battery began. The victim suffered a broken eye socket and could not keep his eye open in the hospital.
Police reviewed video of the incident, writing in the report, “the story is exactly like how [the victim] describes the attack.” Police said the video shows Kamara pushing the victim and punching him in the face, the report said.
“As [the victim] is on the ground, Kamara continues punching him three more times,” the report said. “Three others, from Kamara’s group, join in and begin stomping [the victim] in the face, chest and legs.”
Kamara said he remembered the victim “calling one of his friends ugly” and then a fight breaking out.
“Alvin Kamara has gained a well-deserved reputation for being a hard-working and community minded individual,” Kamara’s attorneys, Drew Findling, David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld 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.”
A third man, Christopher Lammon, has not yet been taken into custody. Records show Harris and Young appeared in court Monday. An arrest warrant was active for Lammons as of Tuesday night with a bail of $5,000.
Kamara remains out on bail. He is scheduled to next appear in court on March 8.
