New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara was one of four people indicted on assault charges stemming from an alleged assault at a Las Vegas nightclub last February.
All four people have been charged with conspiracy to commit assault and battery resulting in substantial bodily harm.
Darnell Greene is seeking $10 million in a lawsuit filed in October after Kamara and three other people allegedly beat him at Drai’s Nightclub at the Cromwell Hotel.

The lawsuit goes on to say that three other people with Kamara stomped on Greene’s chest, legs and face. At one point, Greene lost consciousness and suffered an orbital fracture in one of his eyes, according to the police report.
However, Kamara’s lawyers say the broker acted in self-defense.
“The State has avoided a controversial preliminary hearing by charging Mr. Kamara”, his lawyers said in a statement. «He intends to vigorously fight the charges at trial as he defended himself and others at the time of the incident.»

Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Chris Lammons was also charged. The incident occurred the night before the 2022 Pro Bowl and he was arrested after playing in it.
Kamara did not receive any NFL disciplinary action last season in connection with the incident.
In 15 games, he rushed for 897 yards on 223 carries (4 YPC) while catching 57 passes for 490 yards and finding the end zone six times overall. This season was the first in his six-year career in which he was not named a Pro Bowler.
