Report: Saints RB Alvin Kamara, 3 others indicted in Las Vegas

A Nevada grand jury indicted New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara, Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Chris Lammons and two other men in connection with the alleged beating of a man in a Las Vegas nightclub a year ago, per a report Thursday.

KLAS television in Las Vegas said the four face charges of conspiracy to commit battery and battery resulting in substantial bodily harm. A court date was set for March 2.

A Clark County grand jury found enough evidence to proceed with charges in the Feb. 5, 2022, alleged incident during the NFL’s Pro Bowl weekend.

According to police, video evidence shows Kamara punching a man eight times. The alleged victim was knocked unconscious and sustained an orbital fracture to his right eye, police said. After the man fell, he was allegedly stomped on by others in Kamara’s group.

KLAS reported the incident began when Kamara put his hand on the man’s chest to prevent him from getting on an elevator with the group and escalated when the man pushed away Kamara’s hand.

That alleged victim, identified in court documents as Darnell Greene of Texas, filed a $10 million civil lawsuit in the Civil District Court of Orleans (La.) against Kamara last October. In the complaint, Greene said he will need continued medical care, including surgeries, to treat injuries he said he sustained in the alleged attack.

Kamara, a five-time Pro Bowl selection, played in the Pro Bowl at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas the day after the incident.

Because of the indictment, the case will proceed straight to the district court.

“The state has avoided a contested preliminary hearing by indicting Mr. Kamara,” attorneys David Chesnoff, Drew Findling, and Richard Schonfeld said in a statement, according to KLAS. “He intends to vigorously fight the allegations at trial as he was defending himself and others at the time of the incident.”

Both Kamara and Lammons played in the NFL last season as the league continued an investigation into the allegations.

Kamara, 27, appeared in 15 games (13 starts) and ran for 897 yards and two touchdowns. He added 57 catches for 490 yards and two TDs.

Lammons played for the Chiefs in 2022 and was claimed on waivers by the Bengals before the AFC Championship Game, although the transaction only became official on Monday. The 27-year-old played only 19 snaps on defense but was in the game on 75 percent of special teams' plays. In 16 games, he forced a fumble and made seven tackles.
