Alvin Kamara, star running back for the New Orleans Saints has had a pending load of legal trouble stemming from an alleged incident in Las Vegas. Now an indictment has been handed down, and damning footage has been revealed of the knucklehead player bragging about the assault in the car afterwards. Total Pro Sports reports:
A video in which New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara can be heard bragging about his involvement in an altercation outside of a Las Vegas nightclub has been released following the player’s indictment by a grand jury last week, per 8NEWSNOW.
Kamara was among four men, including Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Chris Lammons, his manager Percy Harris and another male named Darrin Christoper Young, who are facing criminal charges for their part in the incident which took place during Pro Bowl weekend last February.
Lammons was released by the Kansas City Chiefs on January 24th of this year. He was signed by the Bengals off of waiver ostensibly to be a training camp body. His time in Cincinnati is likely over before it starts after the criminal charges were handed down.

The altercation in question took place during the Pro Bowl festivities following the 2021-2022 season. Allegedly a man was attempting to get on an elevator occupied by Kamara and his group when Kamara pushed the man off and the fracas took place. Video of the altercation has also been released. Total Pro Sports continued:
A video of the actual brawl has since surfaced while Las Vegas Metro police have also obtained footage of the men discussing it during a limousine ride.
Kamara is in the seat behind the driver and is heard saying, “I connected with the [expletive]’s jaw so hard.”
Young later warns him of the possibility of a lawsuit.
“Alvin, you trippin’ bro,” he says. “You can’t be doing that. The wrong [expletive] gets you – there will be a lawsuit.”
The victim, Darrell Greene, told police he was beaten up by the group after trying to enter an elevator. According to the indictment, Lammons struck Greene “in the head, neck or upper chest” before Kamara “charged [Greene] in order to strike and/or punch [him] about the head, neck, chest, upper back, and/or torso area.”
Both Kamara and Lammons played for their teams this season. The NFL is yet to address the matter.
NFL players generally aren’t the smartest segment of our society, and bragging about assaulting someone helps prove it. Of course, assaulting someone in Vegas, where there are more cameras than potentially anywhere else in America is also an idiot move.

Likely something precipitated the attack, and certainly Kamara and his group will claim the victim harassed or verbally threatened them, which may actually be true. It was common knowledge that the Pro Bowl was taking place in Vegas, and often people go out of their way to pursue professional athletes, often not just for autographs. However, that doesn’t excuse the thuggish behavior from Kamara and his group.
Despite the impending charges, Kamara played the entire season for the Saints and Lammons played the season for the Kansas City Chiefs without any word from the league on the matter. Now, with criminal indictments handed down and bad video surfacing, Roger Goodell will have to address the matter and it probably won’t go well for either player.
