The NFL Was Informed About Alvin Kamara’s Battery Incident Before The Pro Bowl

Well, this is an interesting development…

Right after the Pro Bowl, New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara was arrested and booked for battery, after beating a man unconscious, fracturing his eye socket.

He was first questioned at the stadium immediately following the game, read his Miranda rights, and arrested right there.

However, the wildest part about the whole situation, is that the NFL knew about the situation before the running back even played in the game.

According to the Nevada Current, the Las Vegas Metro Police Department alerted the NFL about the situation the morning of the game, but since he was already on the field, law enforcement and the NFL still let him play.

LVMPD Assistant Sheriff John McGrath said:

“We got in touch with NFL security about 10 o’clock in the morning and let them know that he (Kamara) was a suspect in the case and they located him and he was already on the field.

So they contacted him and he agreed to meet with us after the game. And so that’s just the way we did it since he was cooperating.”

Video footage showed Kamara and a number of buddies punching the man several times and stomping on him 23 times outside of a night club elevator.

NOLA.com added:

“In an interview with police, Kamara said the victim called one of his friends ugly.

Kamara allegedly put his hand on the victim’s chest, preventing him from walking into the elevator, and the victim pushed Kamara’s hand off, according to the report.

The victim said he was pushed back from the elevator, and the first punch was thrown after that.”

Kamara’s description of the events opposed what was shown in surveillance footage. Police say that the video corroborates the victim’s story and that he was brutally beaten by the group of men, including Kamara.

The victim posted pics of his injuries, and they look pretty brutal… to say the least.

He could serve up to five years in prison for the beating.
