Two more suspects arrested in Alvin Kamara incident
Alvin Kamara is facing a felony charge after he allegedly beat a man in Las Vegas, and two more arrests have since been made in the case.
Police arrested two more suspects on Monday, according to TMZ. The men, Darrin Young and Percy Harris, turned themselves in after warrants were issued. Each was charged with battery resulting in substantial bodily harm, which is the same felony charge Kamara is facing.
Kamara and his friends are accused of beating a man early in the morning hours of Saturday, Feb. 5. The New Orleans Saints star played in the Pro Bowl that Sunday and was arrested at Allegiant Stadium following the game. The NFL was aware of the impending charge prior to the Pro Bowl but allowed Kamara to play anyway.
The police report states that Kamara punched the alleged victim eight times, with three of the punches coming when the man was on the ground. Other men that Kamara was with — likely Young and Harris — also allegedly assaulted the victim. Police reviewed surveillance video that they say shows Kamara putting his arm out to stop the victim from getting in an elevator before the fight broke out.
