New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara and Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Chris Lammons have been indicted on assault charges for allegedly beating a man in a Las Vegas nightclub in February 2022.
The two NFL players are among four people accused of attacking Darnell Greene Jr. before the Pro Bowl, according to ESPN.

"Greene alleges that the four men beat him and stomped on him to the point of unconsciousness. Greene claims to have suffered a fracture to his right orbital bone along with injuries to his back, shoulder, and disc protrusions, the outlet noted," the Daily Caller reported.
"Kamara and Lammons are facing charges of conspiracy to commit battery and battery resulting in substantial bodily harm," the report added.

Kamara previously faced a $10 million lawsuit from the man accusing him of assault at a Las Vegas casino.
Greene’s lawsuit is said to want $5 million for “pecuniary losses, pain and suffering, disfigurement, mental anguish, and past, present, and future medical expenses,” plus an additional $5 million in exemplary damages.

Greene is represented by Tony Buzbee. He is also "the Houston attorney who represented many of the more than 20 women who accused Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson of sexual misconduct during massage sessions."
“Kamara currently faces criminal charges for the occurrence described herein. However, these proceedings have seemingly been put on pause to allow Kamara to play an entire season for the Saints without being suspended,” the lawsuit states.
“Further, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has failed to fully investigate the incident at hand, and is ostensibly waiting for the criminal proceedings to play out before issuing a suspension," it added.
The concerning legal proceedings come just over a year after the incident and the Pro Bowl game changed from an actual all-star event into a series of competitions held in Las Vegas.
The new updates in the case show that the Kamara and Lammons are far from the end of the costly event that could result in serious consequences for the two NFL players.
