Darnell Greene Jr. filed the lawsuit against Kamara in Orleans Civil District Court on Friday, according to reports.
Alvin Kamara Sued For $10 Million
In February, Kamara was arrested on battery charges — just a few hours after he played in the NFL Pro Bowl.
The New Orleans Saints running back and his friends allegedly beat a man unconscious outside a Las Vegas nightclub. Three other men were also arrested and charged in connection to the incident.
Now that man, Darnell Greene Jr., is filing a lawsuit.
According to reports, the lawsuit states Greene ran into Kamara and his three friends when he got into a line for an elevator leaving Drai’s After Hours at Las Vegas’ Cromwell Hotel & Casino.
The running back allegedly blocked Greene from entering the elevator and then proceeded to shove the man into the wall before punching him repeatedly in the face. Greene says he tried to run away, but Kamara chased him down the hall and punch him in the face again.
Greene claims Kamara said, “I connected with the [expletive’s] jaw so hard,” as he got into an SUV with his friends.
According to the lawsuit, Greene suffered with injuries to the neck, back, shoulder, knees and face, including an orbital fracture, from the assault. Included in the lawsuit is a “disturbing picture of what the lawsuit claims were the after-effects in which Greene’s face is bloody and swollen.”
Kamara Speaks To Police At the Time
After the incident, Kamara reportedly spoke to police in an interview, claiming that Greene called one of Kamara’s friends ugly. According to the police report, video footage shows Kamara was not the first one to throw a punch, however, he did join in on the fight and hit Greene several times, continuing to punch the man until he fell to the ground. The three other men stomped his face, chest, and legs.
The lawsuit reportedly claims a friend told Kamara, “You trippin’, bruh, you can’t be doing s*** like that. All you gotta do is be like aye.” Kamara allegedly replied, “I know, bro, but you know I can’t stop.”
Will The NFL Take Action?
The NFL has not taken action at this time, especially since Kamara was allowed to play in the Pro Browl despite the organization being aware of the allegations. The NFL has since declined to fine or suspend Kamara at this time.
The New Orleans Saints running back’s next hearing is scheduled for November 9.
Alvin Kamara is still playing football at this time. So far this season, he has a total of 203 rushing yards and 110 receiving yards in three games. He missed games in Week 3 and 4 due to a rib injury.
Quarterback Andy Dalton and the New Orleans Saints are playing Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals today, October 16, at 1 p.m. EST. Both teams are currently 2-3.
