New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara was arrested in Las Vegas on Sunday night, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

Kamara was booked on suspicion of battery resulting in substantial bodily harm, according to a press release.

Police said that the alleged victim went to a Las Vegas hospital on Saturday evening with injuries stemming from a battery, and the alleged victim reported that Kamara was the assailant. The incident, according to police, occurred at a nightclub in the 3500 block of S. Las Vegas Boulevard.

A charge of battery resulting in substantial bodily harm is a felony in the state of Nevada, and carries a potential penalty of 1-5 years in prison with a mandatory fine of $10,000, if convicted. No formal charges have been levied against Kamara at this time.

Kamara’s cash bail has been set at $5,000, per jail records, and his initial court appearance is scheduled for Monday afternoon. He remained in police custody as of Sunday at 10 p.m. CT.

Kamara’s agent didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Kamara was in Las Vegas this weekend for the Pro Bowl. Kamara participated in the Pro Bowl game on Sunday before his arrest.

The NFL traditionally hands down discipline once legal cases have concluded.
