New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara wasin Las Vegas for battery resulting in significant bodily injury. The NFL has not penalized him for the incident that occurred over the weekend of the 2022 Pro Bowl and the battery case has been delayed, but Kamara is facing a new lawsuit related to the event.
The victim of the alleged battery, Darnell Greene Jr., is suing Kamara and demanding $10 million in damages, according to a lawsuit obtained by NOLA.com. The lawsuit includes footage of Greene trying to “run away and escape from Kamara”, Greene lying unconscious on the casino floor, and footage of the injuries he sustained.
In the lawsuit, Greene alleges that Kamara blocked him from entering the elevator of a Las Vegas nightclub, then “pushed Greene into a wall and repeatedly punched him in the face.” When Greene tried to escape the attack, Kamara is said to have chased him to continue the attack.
According to an incident report filed by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police obtained by NOLA.com, Kamara struck Greene about eight times. The new lawsuit alleges that Kamara then got into an SUV with friends and said, “I made contact with the (expletive)’s jaw so hard.”
The lawsuit also alleges that a friend later told Kamara, “You stumble, you can’t act like this. All you have to do is be like this.”
Kamara then reportedly replied, “I know bro, but you know I can’t stop.”
Greene says he sustained injuries to his neck, back, shoulder, knees and an orbital fracture, along with other facial injuries. In an interview with police, Kamara claimed that Greene called one of his friends ugly. The original report claimed that Kamara put his hand on Greene’s chest to prevent him from entering the elevator and pushed his hand away from him. Greene was then pushed and then a punch was thrown.
Surveillance videos obtained by the police reportedly show that Kamara did not strike the first blow. But once it came down to punches, Kamara reportedly joined in. Video also reportedly shows Kamara beating the victim to the ground as the three other suspects came over and stomped on Greene. The lawsuit he filed cites a police report stating that the victim did not hit, punch or push Kamara or any of the other men present.
All four men involved in the incident are charged with conspiracy to commit battery and battery with significant bodily harm, according to NOLA.com.
