Alvin Kamara’s court proceedings pushed back another 60 days
NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Alvin Kamara was at practice, not in a Las Vegas courtroom, Monday morning for a scheduled hearing dealing with his off-season arrest.
A judge granted attorneys for Kamara and three other defendants a 60-day status check. No action was taken Monday. The next hearing is scheduled for Sept. 29.
The NFL is monitoring the legal developments. Kamara could face suspension, but nothing is certain and possible punishments depend on the findings of the case.
The judge’s ruling comes just hours after the NFL handed down a six-game suspension for Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson, who was accused of sexual misconduct by over two dozen women.

Kamara is facing felony battery charges from an incident in a Las Vegas casino in February.
The Aug. 1 hearing has already twice been postponed after attorneys asked for more time to review evidence.
Police say the Feb. 5 altercation was caught on camera. In the video, police say Kamara puts his hand on the alleged victim’s chest to prevent him from getting onto an elevator at the rooftop nightclub Drai’s. The man reportedly pushed Kamara’s hand away before Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Chris Lammons punched the man.
The man was knocked unconscious and Kamara, Lammons, and two other men, Darrin Young and Percy Harris, allegedly stomped his face, chest, and legs, leaving him with an orbital fracture to his eye and injuries to the head, knees, and arms.

Kamara told police he heard the man call one of his friends ugly before the fight broke out and that he thought the victim was running away when he chased and punched him.
Police say surveillance video refutes Kamara’s story, allegedly showing Kamara’s group strike first and the all-pro running back attack the man “immediately,” punching him at least eight times.
