New Orleans Saints Running Back Alvin Kamara Indicted for 2022 Incident

New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara's troubles stemming from a violent altercation in 2022 are just beginning. Per David Charns of 8newsnow in Las Vegas, the five-time Pro Bowler has been indicted for his role in an alleged beating at a nightclub in February 2022.

Kamara's charges include conspiracy to commit battery and battery resulting in substantial bodily harm. Kamara and three associates are accused of assaulting a man outside an elevator at Drai's nightclub on the night of February 5th, 2022. The victim has also followed a civil suit.

The indictment and criminal charges are a serious issue for Kamara and will affect his availability at some point in the coming seasons, either via league discipline or even jail time. The NFL will likely wait for the legal process to play out before handing down a fine or a suspension, but some sort of punishment appears increasingly inevitable with each passing day. If convicted, Kamara will probably face at least a multi-game ban, potentially as soon as the 2023 season.

Kamara's day in court will come on March 2nd. Per his attorneys, he intends to fight the charges.
