Saints’ Kamara and Chiefs’ Lammons Charged With Beating Of Man Outside Club

Las Vegas, NV – New details have been released about what happened the night a group that included two National Football League (NFL) players badly beat and stomped a man outside a Las Vegas nightclub.

The incident occurred in front of Drai’s Nightclub at The Cromwell hotel on Feb. 5, according to KSNV.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) report said that New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara told officers the fight started after a man approached his group at the elevator and called one of his friends “ugly,” CNN reported.

Kamara also claimed the man told him, “’I’ll whoop your ass too,'” according to the police report.

According to the arrest warrants, surveillance video from in front of the nightclub showed Kamara shoving a man and then Kansas City Chiefs Chris Lammons punching the man in the face and knocking him back against a wall, CNN reported.

The warrant for Kamara’s arrest said the football player then pummeled the man until he lost consciousness and fell to the ground.

Kamara continued punching the man after he was on the ground, and then the warrant said that Lammons and two other men began stomping on the victim, too, CNN reported.

Police said the man sustained an orbital fracture that might require surgery as a result of the attack.

Officials said Drai’s security team broke up the one-sided brawl and escorted Kamara’s group to the valet area, KSNV reported.

Although the victim refused to name his attackers, investigators tracked down the NFL pro bowler using surveillance footage, social media, casino records, and eyewitness accounts.

Kamara played in the NFL Pro Bowl the next day and was arrested at Allegiant Stadium after the game.

He was charged with battery resulting in substantial bodily harm and later released on bail, ESPN reported.

Lammons was also charged with battery resulting in substantial bodily harm as well as the additional charge of conspiracy to commit battery and was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on Feb. 17, CNN reported.

He was later released on $5,000 bail, ESPN reported.

The other two men involved in the fight – Darrin Young and Percy Harris – turned themselves in to the police on Feb. 14 Monday and were booked on the same charges as Lammons.

Lammons’ attorney Ross Goodman said he plans to start his own investigation, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

“It appears to be an unplanned and spontaneous altercation based on my review of the reports,” Goodman said.

Lammons, who is 5-foot-10, 182 pounds, will have his next court appearance March 16, ESPN reported.
