The Las Vegas battery case against Saints RB Alvin Kamara has been delayed again
The battery case against New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara has been delayed until at least November, KLAS-TV in Las Vegas reported Thursday.
Kamara and three other men, including Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Chris Lammons, were charged with felony battery resulting in substantial bodily harm and conspiracy to commit battery following a fight with another man in February in Las Vegas.
The incident happened in a Las Vegas casino at 6:25 a.m. Feb. 5, the day before the Pro Bowl. Kamara participated in the Pro Bowl but was arrested after the game, at 3:30 p.m. PT.
KLAS-TV reported Thursday that lawyers representing the four men, who were not in court, asked Judge Harmony Letizia for 45 more days to attempt to resolve the case.
Kamara's attorney, Richard Schonfeld, told KLAS that the attorneys plan to meet with prosecutors within the next month.
Kamara is alleged to have punched the victim about eight times, including three times while he was on the ground, according to an incident report by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police.
This marks the third time there's been a delay in the case after a judge postponed a hearing in April until Aug. 1. The case was then delayed 60 days.
Kamara is with the Saints in London, where they are preparing to face the Minnesota Vikings at 8:30 a.m. CT Sunday.
