Saints RB Kamara faces $10 million lawsuit on top of felony charge

NEW ORLEANS (AP) – A lawsuit filed this week against New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara is seeking $10 million in damages and a jury trial in connection with the assault in Las Vegas during Pro Bowl weekend.

The chamber is already facing a felony battery charge in the alleged attack on Darnell Greene Jr., who was leaving a club at the hotel and casino around 6:30 a.m. on Feb. 5. Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Chris Lammons he was also charged, as were Darrin Young and Percy Harris.

Kamara played in the Pro Bowl on Feb. 6 before he was arrested. The NFL took no action against Kamara or Lammons, who are both playing this season.

The lawsuit, filed Friday in Orleans Civil District Court, includes surveillance footage from the hotel and casino, as well as a photo of Green after the beating and details from the police report.

Greene was punched in the face and stomped on near the elevator, and was unconscious for “more than two minutes.” The lawsuit alleges that Kamara “intentionally used violent force against (Greene) with the intent to cause actual harm.”

Greene’s orbital lobe was fractured and he had severe injuries to his shoulders, back, head, knees, face and neck, the lawsuit alleges.

Kamara’s agent, Brad Cicala, declined to comment on the lawsuit. NOLA.com published.

Green, of Houston, is represented by the Buzbee law firm, which also was involved in numerous lawsuits against Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson, and the New Orleans-based firm of Garner & Munoz.
