Running back Alvin Kamara of the New Orleans Saints is facing a $10 million lawsuit from a man accusing him of assault at a Las Vegas casino.
— New York Post (@nypost) October 15, 2022
The plaintiff, Darnell Greene, claims that Kamara and a group of his friends jumped him the morning of Feb. 5, 2022 at a nightclub in Vegas called Drai’s, on the weekend of the NFL Pro Bowl. Kamara was allegedly blocking off Greene’s entry into the nightclub elevator and was placed his hands over Greene’s chest to prevent him from getting inside, according to WJTV. When Greene reportedly pushed Kamara’s hands off him, a melee ensued.
Kamara shoved Greene into a wall and began punching him in the face repeatedly, ESPN reports. Greene fell to the ground that Kamara and his friends started viscously stomping on him to the point of unconsciousness, the outlet also noted. From the beatdown, Greene suffered a fractured right orbital bone in his face and endured injuries to his back head, neck, shoulder, and knees.
Greene’s lawsuit is said to want $5 million for “pecuniary losses, pain and suffering, disfigurement, mental anguish, and past, present, and future medical expenses,” plus an additional $5 million in exemplary damages.

It’s mind-boggling as to why Kamara would dabble in senseless violence like this. As a rich and famous public figure, you would think that he would want no part of fighting random people on his night out with his friends — but I guess not. He is the latest example of a professional athlete getting into trouble for acting crazy.
Greene has hired Houston attorney, Tony Buzbee, the same lawyer that is also representing quarterback Deshaun Watson for his multiple sexual assault cases, according to ESPN.
Hopefully justice is served and Kamara faces proper consequences for the cowardly beatdown should he be found guilty.
