Saints RB Alvin Kamara suspended three games for role in February 2022 incident in Las Vegas
New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara was suspended for the first three games of the 2023 regular season by the NFL on Friday for violating the league's personal conduct policy, NFL Network Insiders Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero reported.
Indianapolis Colts cornerback Chris Lammons was also suspended for three games for his role in the incident, the team announced on Friday.
The violations stem from a February 2022 battery arrest in Las Vegas, which Kamara resolved on July 11 when he pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of breach of peace.
Kamara was ordered to complete 30 hours of community service and pay victim Darrell Greene restitution in the amount of $105,196.17 for past due medical expenses. Kamara also was fined $500. With the plea, Kamara avoided a potential felony battery charge, which would have carried a maximum five-year sentence.
"I never want to be involved in something where someone gets hurt or severely injured or anything. Poor judgement on my end. Definitely a bad decision," Kamara said prior to the news of his suspension. "I was completely wrong. I embarrassed the Saints, I embarrassed my family and my mother. I embarrassed myself, embarrassed the city, and the shield, obviously, embarrassed the NFL."
Kamara and three others, including Lammons, were faced with charges for allegedly punching and kicking Greene outside a Las Vegas nightclub during the 2022 Pro Bowl weekend. Kamara, who played in the Pro Bowl on Feb. 6, 2022, was arrested following the game along with the other defendants and indicted on Feb. 16 of this year.
According to the police report, surveillance video corroborated Greene's allegations to police that Greene was punched by Lammons and kicked by multiple people.
Greene suffered an orbital fracture to his right eye, per the police report. He filed a civil lawsuit seeking $10 million that was settled confidentially.
