Just before 6 p.m. PT on Saturday, officers from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department were sent to a nearby hospital, according to a news release. Someone allegedly assaulted another individual at a club in the 3500 block of South Las Vegas Boulevard.
On that block are also Caesars Palace and the Forum Shops. The official police report states that it was detective work that ultimately led them to suspect Kamara.
Alvin Kamara Charged With Felony Battery After Nightclub Altercation
The 26-year-old Kamara travelled to the area for Sunday’s Pro Bowl at Allegiant Stadium. He was charged with participating in the altercation, but he still played. He caught four receptions for the 23 yards. One of his plays went viral as a result of the exhibition game’s lack of physical contact.
It took authorities until just before 7 pm PT to issue a statement following the game.
According to officials, anyone with information regarding the crime can contact the Las Vegas police department via their website.
Kamara is Accused With a Felony.
Battery is categorised as a misdemeanour in the state of Nevada. However, if it causes serious physical harm, the crime is upgraded to class C status. If found guilty of such a serious offence, the offender faces a fine of up to $10,000 and a jail term of one to five years.
Battery would become a class B felony if a hazardous weapon had been used in the assault. A sentence of two to fifteen years in jail would follow. Uncertainty exists regarding the use of a lethal weapon in the aforementioned occurrence.
A message sent with the LVMPD on Sunday night did not get a prompt response. Kamara’s bond was set at $5,000 as of 8:20 p.m. PT on December 1st, 2018, per records kept by the Clark County Jail. He has a court hearing on Monday after work.
NFL Player Recently Visited Sin City
About a week before Kamara was detained, former Las Vegas Raiders defensive back Damon Arnette was detained on various charges following a fight at Park MGM, just down the Strip from Caesars.
Police said that Arnette pulled a pistol on a valet at the MGM Resorts International casino after the valet requested for a ticket for his car. Arnette was a member of the Kansas City Chiefs’ reserve squad at the time of his arrest. The 25-year-old was finally released by the Chiefs though.
Arnette’s former Raiders teammate Henry Ruggs III was detained for DUI last November as a result of a collision that resulted in the death of a 23-year-old woman.
The Raiders decided to release the former first-round pick following the arrest. He might serve the next fifty years in prison due to the seriousness of the charges.
