NFL stars Kamara and Lammons plead not guilty after Vegas hotel brawl

NFL stars Alvin Kamara and Chris Lammons have both pled not guilty to criminal charges after their alleged roles in the brutal beatdown of a man in a nightclub last year.

The pair both appeared in a Vegas courtroom on Wednesday at an arraignment hearing, with both saying very few words throughout the session.

The NFL pair, as well as two other men named Darrin Young and Percy Harris – the latter of which was identified in court as Kamara’s manager – pled not guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit battery (a misdemeanor) and battery resulting in substantial bodily harm (a felony).

A court date was set for July 31, which is typically during the NFL’s training camps, which Kamara and Lammons would have been expected to attend. 

The incident occurred inside The Cromwell Hotel and Casino in February 2022, just hours before the NFL’s Pro Bowl at Allegiant Stadium.

According to a lawsuit filed by the alleged victim, Darnell Greene, the fight occurred after he got into an argument with New Orleans Saints star Kamara over the use of an elevator outside the hotel’s Drai’s Nightclub.

In surveillance video acquired by , it is more clear what happened in the brawl in a hallway of the hotel shortly before 6.30am.

KLAS reported that the incident began when Kamara put his hand on the man’s chest to prevent him from getting into the elevator with the group and escalated when the man pushed away Kamara’s hand. 

In the clips – from two different angles – a group of people can be seen making their way down the corridor, with two men initially appearing to attack a third.More individuals follow the group, with a further two men joining in the beatdown.

After one particularly brutal punch, betmatik the alleged victim of the assault – Greene, of Houston, Texas – seemingly hits his head on the wall, before being pushed to the ground.
