Website publishes video purportedly showing Saints’ Kamara striking man in Las Vegas
NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A video purportedly showing Saints running back Alvin Kamara punching a man in a Las Vegas hotel hallway nine months ago was published by a celebrity news website on Saturday (Nov. 5).
TMZ Sports said it exclusively obtained the video, which it says shows Kamara and others punching and kicking Darnell Greene Jr. on Feb. 5 inside The Cromwell Hotel and Casino.
Kamara’s face is not visible and Fox 8 was unable to verify the authenticity of the video. But images from the video appear to match still photos attached as exhibits to a recent lawsuit.
Greene last month filed a $10 million lawsuit against the Saints star in Orleans Parish Civil District Court. Greene’s attorney, Tony Buzbee, responded Saturday to a request for comment on the video saying:
“There are several videos that exist, from different angles both before and after the assault. Our team hasn’t released any videos as of yet and are unaware as to how TMZ acquired the particular video that was released. It does appear that the video TMZ released is indeed authentic. As seen in the video, Mr. Greene was attacked and beaten without provocation. Worse, Mr. Kamara bragged and laughed about his conduct after the fact. We have that on video as well. We look forward to presenting this case to a jury and obtaining justice for Mr. Greene. We also hope that the NFL takes note of the egregiousness of Mr. Kamara’s conduct and at some point acts accordingly.”
Kamara faces a felony battery charge in Nevada, where the next hearing in his case is scheduled for Wednesday (Nov. 9).
Kamara has not yet faced discipline from the NFL over the incident. He is expected to play for the Saints against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night, in a game from Caesars Superdome that will be televised on Fox 8. Coverage starts with Fox 8 Tailgate at 5:30 p.m.
