Kamara, Cincinnati Bengals star Chris Lammons, and two others are accused of beating a man outside of Drai's nightclub in Vegas.

A reported altercation that occurred in Las Vegas last year has spelled more trouble for Alvin Kamara. The incident was said to have occurred during Pro Bowl weekend outside of the celebrity favorite, Drai's Nightclub. According to authorities, a man named Darnell Green was trying to get into an elevator when he was blocked. The Saints running back is accused of touching Greene on his chest. When Greene pushed his hand away, an alleged assault occurred.

Reports claim three other suspects joined in on an attack against Greene. Christopher Young, Percy Harris, and Cincinnati Bengals star Chris Lammons have also been named in an indictment. It's alleged the four men punched and kicked Greene. The victim received an orbital fracture on his right eye.

PEOPLE stated a "Clark County grand jury indicted the NFL stars and two others on criminal charges of conspiracy to commit battery, and battery resulting in substantial bodily harm." In November 2022, TMZ released a surveillance video that showed that attack. However, alleged sources close to Kamara told the outlet that the clip didn't adequately detail what led to the chaos. They claim the purported victim incited an argument and became violent first.

"Alvin Kamara has gained a well-deserved reputation for being a hard-working and community-minded individual," said Kamara's legal team in a statement. "The recent Las Vegas allegations are not consistent with who Mr. Kamara has shown himself to be in both his public and private life. Therefore, we are conducting our own investigation into all the circumstances and individuals associated with this matter to determine both the facts and motivations of all involved."

Meanwhile, Greene has also filed a lawsuit against Kamara. He is seeking $10 million and claimed he didn't fight back during the tussle. "[Kamara] chased Greene down the hall and proceeded to strike him multiple times until he was knocked to the ground," the lawsuit shared. "At no point during the attack did Greene hit, punch, or push Kamara or any of his associates." Kamara is scheduled to appear in court on March 2.
