(Las Vegas) New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara has not contested a misdemeanor charge stemming from a fight last year that left a man unconscious at a Las Vegas nightclub. Vegas, his attorney said Tuesday.
Kamara and three other men faced felony charges for allegedly hitting, kicking and stomping on Darnell Greene son of Houston outside a club elevator. The altercation came a day before the 2022 NFL Pro Bowl.

His attorneys, David Chesnoff, Richard Schonfeld and Drew Findling, released a statement saying, “Alvin is pleased to have this matter behind him and looks forward to a successful NFL season. »
Kamara is facing a possible suspension by the NFL.
“We have been closely monitoring all developments in this matter, which remains under review,” the NFL said in a statement.
