New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara is one of the best running backs in the National Football League. The Tennessee product is a two-time all-pro selection and made five straight Pro Bowls from 2017 to 2021.
But, he appears to be in hot water with the law. This time, it stems from an altercation at a bar in Las Vegas.

Here are more details.
A Clark County grand jury has indicted Alvin Kamara and three others for an alleged beating at a Las Vegas nightclub last year.
Kamara, a running back for the New Orleans Saints, Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Chris Lammons and two other men face criminal charges connected to the incident outside of a Strip nightclub on Feb. 5, 2022, during the NFL Pro Bowl weekend.
The grand jury indicted the four men Wednesday on charges of conspiracy to commit battery and battery resulting in substantial bodily harm.
The victim, Darnell Greene, told Las Vegas Metro police that he was waiting outside an elevator at Drai’s Nightclub alongside a group of people, including the four suspects.
When some elevator doors opened, Kamara put his hand on the victim’s chest to stop him from entering the elevator, police said.
According to police, after the victim pushed Kamara’s hand off his chest, Kamara shoved him before another suspect, identified as Lammons, punched Greene and knocked him back against a wall.
That does not sound good for Kamara, and the running back could miss significant time next season.
