Alvin Kamara has got himself in some serious legal trouble. The New Orleans Saints player was booked on battery in Las Vegas after Sunday’s Pro Bowl.
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department issued a statement detailing the events which lead to Alvin’s arrest. Their press release stated “Las Vegas PD officers were dispatched to a local hospital on Saturday at approximately 5:50 p.m. local time, where a victim reported being battered at a nightclub located on the 3500 block of South Las Vegas Blvd.” An investigation lead by the Las Vegas MPD detectives determined the “victim was battered by the suspect, later identified as Alvin Kamara,”
Kamara was arrested and was placed in Clark County Detention Center in Nevada where he was booked for battery resulting in substantial bodily harm. According to CCDC’s website, Kamara is in custody, being held on $5,000 bail and his first scheduled court appearance is Monday at 1:30 p.m. local time.
The investigation to probe into the matter is still ongoing. No further details have been released as of now. In Nevada, battery with substantial bodily harm is a felony, and if convicted, Kamara could face at least one year in a state prison and a $10,000 fine.
The 26-year old RB was selected by the Saints in the third round of the 2017 NFL draft. The athlete has achieved a permanent spot on the team’s offense as the top running back. Kamara earned a spot in this year’s Pro Bowl after rushing for 898 yards and four touchdowns on 240 carries and catching 47 passes for 439 yards and five scores in 13 games.
Kamara had four catches for 23 yards in Sunday’s Pro Bowl. The AFC defeated the NFC 41-35. The five-time Pro Bowler signed a five-year, $75 million contract extension with the Saints in 2020. New Orleans Saints have yet to comment on Alvin’s arrest.
