New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara was arrested on a battery charge on Sunday in Las Vegas after being accused of injuring someone at a nightclub on the eve of the Pro Bowl, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
Police said they were dispatched around 5:50 p.m. local time Saturday to a hospital where a person had reported a battery at a nightclub. The police said detectives determined the victim was battered by Kamara.
After playing and making four catches for 23 yards for the NFC in Sunday's Pro Bowl, Kamara was taken into custody without incident, according to police, and booked at the Clark County Detention Center on a charge of battery resulting in substantial bodily harm.
Kamara was later released from custody after posting bond. He has a March 8 court date. A conviction on the charge could result in a sentence of one to five years in state prison.
Neither Kamara's representatives nor the Saints immediately responded to a request for comment.
Kamara, 26, had 1,337 yards from scrimmage and nine TDs this season en route to being selected for his fifth Pro Bowl in five seasons as a pro. He was named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2017.
