Alvin Kamara, a running back for the New Orleans Saints, was arrested in Las Vegas on Sunday night following his team’s performance in the Pro Bowl.
Kamara was wanted for questioning in connection with a battery charge stemming from an incident that allegedly occurred the night before at a local nightclub.
Reports from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to DailyMail.com state that officers did not take Kamara into custody until after Sunday’s Pro Bowl.
Because they did not positively identify him as the accused assailant until more than 10 hours after the attack had taken place on Saturday.
According to a statement released to DailyMail.com, on February 5, 2022, patrol police were dispatched to a local hospital after a report of a crime.
The event occurred around 10 hours before the officers arrived, and the victim was receiving medical attention during that time.
Following up on the scene where the crime was allegedly committed, the responding detectives were able to identify Alvin Kamara as the prime suspect.
Kamara Charged with Felony
A misdemeanour charge can be filed for battery in the state of Nevada. If it results in serious bodily harm, however, the crime is elevated to the class C level.
A person convicted of a felony of such severity could get a fine of up to $10,000 and a jail sentence of one to five years. If a lethal weapon was used during the battery, the crime is elevated to a class B felony.
A prison term of between two and fifteen years would be possible under certain circumstances. Whether or not a lethal weapon was used in the purported event is unclear.
Attempts to reach the LVMPD on Sunday night went unanswered. As of 8:20 pm PT, Kamara’s bond was set at $5,000, per documents from the Clark County Jail. On Monday after work he has a court date.
