New Orleans Saints star running back Alvin Kamara is reportedly facing a $10 million lawsuit from a man who said Kamara assaulted him in Las Vegas in February.
Related to the incident, ESPN noted that Kamara – a five-time Pro Bowl selection – was already facing an assault charge and a charge of conspiracy to commit a battery.
According to ESPN, Darnell Greene Jr. of Harris County, Texas, sued Friday, alleging that Kamara, 27, and others in his group pushed him into a wall and repeatedly slapped him in the face. The suit says that Kamara and the others also stomped on Greene as he lay unconscious on the ground.
Subject: Not good for Alvin Kamara.
He now faces a $10 million civil lawsuit on top of felony charges, and stills of the incident accompanied the filing.
The victim was slapped in the face and trampled near an elevator and was unconscious for “over two minutes”.

According to the lawsuit, Greene alleges that after being hit, someone in Kamara’s group jokingly compared the sound of Greene being hit to the sound of Greene being hit with a baseball bat, CourthouseNews reported.
The lawsuit states that Greene suffered a “disfiguring facial fracture to Greene’s right orbital bone, blunt force trauma to his head, multiple herniated discs and structural tears in his shoulder,” according to ESPN.
Although the attack allegedly took place on the morning of February 5, the criminal case in court has been postponed, with the next hearing scheduled for November 9, according to Fox News.
Noting that Kamara has not received any disciplinary action from the NFL, ESPN said the lawsuit states that “Kamara is currently being prosecuted for the incident described herein. However, that process appears to have been put on hold to allow Kamara to play a full season with the Saints without being suspended.”

“In addition, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has failed to fully investigate the incident at hand and is reportedly awaiting completion of the criminal case before issuing a suspension.
“It is strongly suspected that Goodell viewed the violent security footage of the attack — as did the plaintiff — but chose not to take corrective action. Darnell Greene refuses to allow the Commissioner, the authorities or Kamara himself to sweep this matter under the rug,” the lawsuit reads.
Las Vegas police said the incident happened near an elevator at Drais nightclub outside of the Cromwell Casino, according to Fox.
The outlet reported that police said the incident began when Kamara prevented the alleged victim from entering an elevator and the man pushed Kamara’s hand away.
Later that day, Kamara attended the Pro Bowl.
According to WLBT-TV, Kamara has claimed that Greene called one of his friends ugly.
The station reported that Kamara told police he chased Greene because he thought Greene had done something to the friend he was dating.
WVUE-TV reported that Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Chris Lammons was in the group with Kamara.
Kamara rushed to a league record with six touchdowns as New Orleans defeated the Minnesota Vikings 52-33 on Christmas Day 2020.
The only other NFL players to score six touchdowns in a game were the Chicago Cardinals’ Ernie Nevers in 1929, the Cleveland Browns’ Dub Jones in 1951, and the Chicago Bears’ Gale Sayers in 1965.
Kamara and Nevers are the only players to score all six TDs on rushing plays.
