Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams has been cited for assault over an incident that took place Monday night. The incident in question occurred following the Raiders’ defeat against the Kansas City Chiefs.
According to a TMZ report, Kansas City Municipal Court records state that Adams was cited for assault after he pushed photographer Ryan Zebley to the ground. Zebley reportedly suffered whiplash, a headache and possible minor concussion.
Following the incident, Zebley had filed a police report, and claimed that he had to go to the hospital and be treated for non-life-threatening injuries. Adams has also issued an apology for pushing Zebley.
I wanted to say sorry to him for that because that was just frustration mixed with him literally just running in front of me. I shouldn’t have responded that way, but that’s how I initially responded. So, I want to apologize to him for that.
Adams also has the support of Raiders coach, Josh McDaniels, who claimed that Adams is a good person, and that he does not believe that there was any intent behind Adams pushing Zebley.
A virtual court date has been set for Adams, expected to take place in November. Meanwhile, the NFL is still investigating the incident and has not finalized any decisions.
