New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara is the subject of a lawsuit filed Friday in New Orleans by the man Kamara and three others are accused of assauting in February outside of a Las Vegas nightclub during Pro Bowl weekend.
Darnell Greene Jr., of Houston, alleges he was leaving the club about 6:30 a.m. on Feb. 5 and joined a group at the elevator that included Kamara, Kansas City Chiefs defensive back Chris Lammons and others, when he was severely beaten. Greene is seeking $10 million in damages.
In the lawsuit, he claims that Kamara, 27, blocked his entry into the elevator, then “shoved Greene into a wall and repeatedly punched him in the face.”
Greene alleges he began to run away but that Kamara chased him down the hall to throw more punches.
The lawsuit cites a police report, which states, “At no point during this attack did Greene hit, punch, or push Kamara or any of his associates.” Kamara then got into an SUV with friends and said, “I connected with the (expletive’s) jaw so hard.”
Greene claims he sustained injuries to his neck, back, shoulder, knees and face, including an orbital bone fracture.
The allegations mirror those of a criminal battery complaint against Kamara and three others in Nevada. All four men face charges of conspiracy to commit battery and battery with substantial bodily harm in connection with the incident outside of the club on the Las Vegas Strip.
Kamara was interrogated and arrested following the Pro Bowl. According to an incident report filed by Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, Kamara punched Greene about eight times. Three of those punches came with Greene on the ground.
