Chiefs cornerback Chris Lammons surrendered to authorities Thursday and was booked at the Clark County Dentention Center in Las Vegas, Katelyn Newberg of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Lammons was charged with a felony count of battery resulting in serious bodily harm and a gross misdemeanor count of conspiracy to commit battery.

Lammons, 26, posted a $5,000 bail.

The alleged battery resulted in the arrest of Saints running back Alvin Kamara following the Pro Bowl. Two other suspects, Percy Harris and Darrin Young, were booked Monday.

The victim told police he was leaving Drai’s After Hours at The Cromwell Las Vegas Hotel & Casino in the early morning hours Feb. 5 when multiple people began hitting and kicking him. The four suspects allegedly stomped on the victim approximately 23 times and punched the victim nine times, police said.

The victim fractured a bone in his eye socket and other injuries, according to the incident report.

Battery resulting in bodily harm in Nevada carries a sentence of one to five years in prison with a mandatory fine of $10,000 if convicted. Conspiracy to commit battery, in this instance as a gross misdemeanor, carries a penalty of up to 364 days in jail and/or up to $2,000 in fines.

Kamara has a court date scheduled for March 8. Lammons, Harris and Young are set to appear in court again on March 16.

  1. With all the ads supporting gambling during the Super Bowl and throughout the regular season, I’m waiting for the odds/lines to come out on whether these guys will be indicted, brought to trial, convicted, or serve time. I will take the under on any these bets. We know Goodell won’t do anything so no better than even odds on that bet. I will bet the house that the players will be nice fines to make it go away and pay a handsome settlement to the victim to stay silent.

    Things would be very different if they weren’t ball players. Incredible but not a shocker to know the police let Kamara turn himself in AFTER the game.

  2. Went to Drais after hours nightclub once with a friend.

    There was about 100 people in line and 20 cops standing around.

    It was very clear that this was not a safe place to be.

    Also its inside of a casino so I imagine they agave crystal clear video footage of everything that happened.

  3. I side with Michelle Tafoya! As far as this guy goes, I’m a pretty big chiefs fan and I don’t even recognize his name.

  4. What on earth? Four men punched out & stump on another man.
    The Washington Post is reporting that there is surveillance video.

    “Police say surveillance video shows Kamara and at least three other men attacked the victim Feb. 5 at about 6:30 a.m. They say it shows Kamara punching the man repeatedly before others stomped on the man while he was on the floor at the rooftop nightclub Drai’s above the Cromwell hotel-casino.”

  5. Here’s a management maxim that eludes Andy Reid: hire for character, train for skill. KC has no class.

  6. Don’t worry, the “misunderstood” guys made a mistake. They’re really good people. Their athlete privilege will get them a fine of a couple hundred bucks and 10 hours community service.

  7. If any average Joe (without an expensive lawyer) did this, they would do time, without question.
    I’m betting neither of the Chiefs end up doing anything but paying out a settlement.

  8. “The victim fractured a bone in his eye socket and other injuries”

    What? If I trip and break my arm, then I broke my arm. The victim didn’t break his own orbital bone.

  9. Imagine having such a fragile ego that you and your professional athlete buddies gang up and beat ONE PERSON to the ground, then stomp on his head until he’s unconscious. Real tough guys there.

    I hope they all get prison and are banned from the league. Hopefully the victim sues the hell out of them.

  10. Has anyone noticed that it’s almost always football players. When was the last time you heard of a baseball player, basketball player or even a hickey player committ such vicious crimes. It’s either a culture problem or a concussion problem, or both. Given the extreme brutality of the crime, both players should be banned for life

    Update: The Chiefs have resigned Chris Lammons and Willie Gay to long term extensions.

    Not even remotely true. Lammons is scheduled to be a free agent and Gay is still on his rookie deal. Why you want to lie like this?

  12. are the sorts books offering odds on who gets convicted, which nfl player will be the next to be arrested for assault or carrying an illegal firearm…
