A new police report from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department details what allegedly happened on Saturday at a nightclub located in the 3500 block of South Las Vegas Boulevard leading to New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara being arrested on suspicion of battery right after the Pro Bowl.

Hours before the 2022 Pro Bowl, the 26-year-old running back was at the Cromwell Casino at Drais After Dark Club in Las Vegas. According to the victim, Darnell Greene, the battery took place around 6:30 local time.

In the official press release Sunday night, LVPD said officers were dispatched to a nearby hospital at 5:50 p.m. on Saturday to speak to a person who reported a battery. Upon arrival, a ‘still shaken’ Greene told officers he could recall the fight and describe one male.

According to the police report, Greene said he was leaving the club and waiting by the elevators. He walked upon a group of people waiting outside and started having a conversation with them. When the elevator opened, everyone walked towards the opening doors.

At that point, Greene says, Kamara placed his hand on Greene’s chest to stop him from entering the elevator. Greene says he then pushed Kamara’s hand off his chest. He was then shoved and stumbled back when he says he started being hit and punched by multiple people before losing consciousness.

“They allege that Kamara and three of his friends got into a fight with a man, his name was Darnell Greene, coming off an elevator.
