Arrest warrant offers more details on Vegas nightclub altercation in which 2 NFL players face charges – WISH-TV | Indianapolis News | Indiana Weather forecast
(CNN) – The arrest warrant for an NFL player accused of punching and stomping a man at a Las Vegas Nightclub over Pro Bowl weekend provides additional details about what police say took place.
According to an arrest warrant from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department filed last week and obtained by Affiliated with CNN KSNVKansas City Chiefs player Chris Lammons is charged with assault causing substantial bodily harm and conspiracy to commit assault in the incident which police say also involved the Saints player New Orleans Alvin Kamara, who faces the same charges.
Surveillance video from Feb. 5 allegedly shows Lammons punching a man in the face and pushing him back against a wall after Kamara pushed the man, according to the warrant. The victim’s name has not been released.
Kamara allegedly punched the man repeatedly until he was knocked unconscious and fell to the ground, according to the February 13 warrant. Kamara continued to hit the man, and Lammons and two others began to trample the man, the warrant says.
Two other men were also charged in the altercation.
The man’s right eye suffered an orbital fracture that may require surgery, according to the warrant. He said there was no evidence of serious injuries.
Lammons was taken to the Clark County Detention Center on February 17 and has since posted bail, charging documents show.
CNN has contacted Lammons’ attorney but has yet to hear back.
Kamara, who participated in the Pro Bowl the day after the fight, was questioned and arrested after the match at Allegiant Stadium. He posted bond the next day, according to a court ticket.
Kamara told police he and his friends were waiting near an elevator when a man approached them and called one of his friends ‘ugly’, according to the LVMPD arrest report for Kamara.
The man, according to Kamara, also said, “‘I’m going to kick your ass too,'” the report said.
In a statement to CNN after Kamara’s arrest, his attorney said the five-time Pro Bowler “has earned a well-deserved reputation as a hard-working, community-minded person.
“The recent Las Vegas allegations are inconsistent with who Mr. Kamara has shown himself in his public and private life. Therefore, we are conducting our own investigation of all circumstances and individuals associated with this matter to determine both the facts and the motivations of all involved.
