New Orleans Saints star Alvin Kamara has been hit with a lawsuit following allegations that he violently punched a man at a Las Vegas hotel earlier this year.
Sources close to Kamara say the video doesn’t tell the full story, claiming the alleged victim became violent first, TMZ reported.
The incident took place on Feb. 5 inside The Cromwell Hotel and Casino.
Darnell Greene filed a lawsuit in October, following the altercation that went down after he and the football player got into an argument near an elevator close to the hotel’s popular Drai’s Nightclub.
Greene claims he tried to get on the lift with Kamara and his associates. But, Kamara barred him from getting on by “throwing his arm across Greene’s chest,” and then brutally attacking him.
In the new footage, Kamara is seen wearing a light shirt and his signature dreads while throwing repeated punches at Greene.
The video shows the punches taking the man to the ground. While down, the video shows several other men jumping in the attack, kicking and stomping the guy, before clearing out.
The clip appears to match pictures that Greene’s attorneys cited in the lawsuit against the star player last month. According to the suit, as a result of the attack, Greene suffered injuries to his neck, back, head, shoulder, knees, and face, including “a disfiguring facial fracture to” his right orbital bone.
Greene is suing Kamara for $10 million.
Kamara was arrested for the incident following the 2022 ProBowl game and charged with felony battery resulting in substantial bodily harm and misdemeanor conspiracy to commit battery.
Kamara admitted to punching the man. He is scheduled to appear in court next week.
