TMZ Sports is reporting, the man went to cops at Arrowhead Stadium at around 10:30 PM. This was just moments after Adams had pushed him down following the Raiders’ 30-29 loss.

The man is claiming that he was the victim of an assault. He was later transported to the hospital.

Police say they are investigating the incident and following the completion of the probe, detectives “will coordinate with the applicable city or state prosecutor to determine any applicable charges.”

Adams later apologized for his actions at his locker following the game. He then also took to Twitter, and posted an apology.

“I wanted to say sorry to him for that because that was just frustration mixed with him literally just running in front of me,” Adams said. “I shouldn’t have responded that way, but that’s how I initially responded. So, I want to apologize to him for that.”

The league is reviewing the situation. A suspension is on the table.
