Alvin Kamara was all smiles earlier today at this year’s Pro Bowl in Las Vegas. The multifaceted running back for the New Orleans Saints darted in and out of his routes and caught four passes for 23 yards in the NFC’s 41 to 35 loss to the AFC.
While Kamara may have enjoyed his time on the field, shortly after, his smile was wiped from his face.
At approximately 5:50 p.m. PST, hours after the Pro Bowl concluded, Kamara was arrested for assault which was resulted in what is being reported as “significant bodily harm.”
According to the report, Las Vegas police were called to a local hospital Saturday night in response to a victim who claims that he was attacked at a nightclub by Kamara. As of now, Kamara was booked and being held at the Clark County Detention Center and facing charges of battery assault resulting in significant bodily harm, a felony in the state of Nevada. Kamara was held on a $5,000 bond. Presently, an investigation is still ongoing. No statement by Kamara or the Saints origination were made as of yet.
The 26-year-old has spent his entire five-year career with the Saints franchise and has become one of the NFL’s standout stars, nabbing a Pro Bowl appearance in each of his five seasons.
