The video of Alvin Kamara incident was released nearly nine months after the New Orleans Saints player was accused of assaulting a man in a Las Vegas nightclub elevator.
Alvin Kamara was involved in a Las Vegas incident, which was captured on video
TMZ released video on Saturday of a violent February incident involving New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara.
Kamara was arrested and charged with battery causing serious bodily harm in February following an alleged altercation in Las Vegas.
Initially, details of the incident were scarce, but a police report was filed alleging that a man was assaulted by four men at Drai’s After Dark club in the Cromwell Casino. One of those men was later identified as Kamara.
TMZ obtained video of the incident, which appears to show Kamara repeatedly and violently assaulting a man.
Darrell Greene, who filed a lawsuit against Kamara over the incident in October, is believed to be the man in the video.
Kamara was arrested and questioned by detectives shortly after the Pro Bowl, explaining why he was in Vegas at the time, before being charged with battery.
The NFL has been debating whether or not Kamara will be suspended for the alleged incident since February.
For nine months, a cloud has hung over Kamara and the Saints, but the NFL has yet to take any disciplinary action.
The victim called one of Kamara’s group members ugly and said, “I’ll whoop your ass too,” according to Kamara.
Kamara told detectives that he witnessed a fight break out next to him and saw the victim get punched, so he punched him as well, thinking he was fleeing.
Kamara claimed he had no idea if he punched the victim on the ground.
The NFL recognizes that the incident is still being investigated by the LVPD and will likely make a decision on punishment this offseason, so a suspension is unlikely to be imposed this season.
The most likely scenario is that Kamara loses games at the start of next season rather than this season, but the league ultimately decides.
