According to police, Alvin Kamara, the New Orleans Saints’ running back, was arrested in Las Vegas on Sunday.
On Saturday night, according to a statement from the Metropolitan Police Department, officers were called to a hospital for a medical emergency. An injured victim claimed to authorities that he or she had been injured at a nightclub in the 3500 block of Las Vegas Boulevard.
As a result, Kamara, a 26-year-old man, was arrested the following day and put into the Clark County Detention Center on suspicion of violence resulting in significant bodily harm. According to court documents, he posted bond on Sunday night, and a hearing in the case that had been planned for Monday afternoon was canceled.
Additionally, he is scheduled to appear in court on March 8, according to court documents.
Earlier on Sunday, Kamara competed in the NFL’s Pro Bowl at Allegiant Stadium, where he recorded four receptions for a combined 23 yards.
Officials from the NFL confirmed that they were aware of the arrest but declined to comment further.
Kamara has been selected to the Pro Bowl in each of his five NFL seasons, and he has accumulated more than 1,300 scrimmage yards in each of his five seasons in the league. The former third-round pick out of Tennessee was voted NFL rookie of the year in 2017, and he is one of only two players in NFL history to rush for six touchdowns in a single game, the other being Peyton Manning in 2008.
Despite the fact that he did not play for the Crimson Tide, Kamara, an Atlanta native, was considered one of the finest high school prospects in the country before attending Alabama.
