Saints running back Alvin Kamara and Bengals cornerback Chris Lammons entered not guilty pleas to battery charges in a Las Vegas courtroom on Thursday.

Kamara, Lammons and two other men were indicted by a grand jury last month on two charges  — one count of conspiracy to commit battery gross misdemeanor and one count of battery substantial bodily harm felony — as a result of an incident in February 2022. A jury trial is set to begin in July.

Kamara is accused of punching a man multiple times in the face during a dispute outside of a club in Las Vegas. The other men allegedly stomped on the victim, who, per the police report, was knocked unconscious and suffered an orbital fracture.

That man also filed a civil lawsuit against Kamara for $10 million.

  1. Anyone that pleads not guilty to what we saw deserves the maximum punishment the law allows if found guilty.

  2. If only there was video, witnesses, a police report, and a medical report of the man who had his face caved in. There’s something seriously wrong if he’s not convicted.

  3. I feel bad for the victim, however unlikely it is that he’ll get anything close to $10m (if anything at all). The baseline facts that a bunch of drunk guys got into a scuffle does not equate to $10M for what is, quite literally, a solid butt-kicking for the victim.

  4. Come on man! we already saw the video. You are guilty as sin just admit it and say sorry. Maybe the judge will take it easy on you both.

  5. At least Willie apologized and took full responsibility. They’re both violent offenders and belong in jail, but pleading ‘not guilty’ when it’s all on video takes some nerve and should deduct points.

  6. The tape doesn’t lie but anyone criticizing a not guilty plea as a matter of procedure either doesn’t know how the system works or does not fully embrace the idea of American rights and justice. Even the obviously guilty are entitled to present a defense, no matter how ridiculous or absurd. It’s just common sense to never self-incriminate, and that goes for the guilty and the fully innocent and everything between. Normally, charges are thrown and there’s some result in the middle.
