Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams has been charged with misdemeanor assault for shoving a photographer to the ground on his way to the locker room after losing to the Kansas City Chiefs.
According to the NFL Network, a Kansas City, Missouri Municipal Court citation says that Adams “did, by an intentional, overt act, inflict bodily injury” on the complainant. The report says that Adams’ push resulted in “whiplash and head ache”, and even possibly a concussion.
Photographer filed police report
The photographer, Ryan Zebley, filed a police report after the incident, which took place on Monday night. The report said that Zebley arranged for private transport to the hospital to be treated, and that the injuries were not thought to be life threatening.
Adams had apologized on social media for what he did as he left the field, claiming that he was frustrated after his team’s loss.
Aside from the assault charges, Adams could also face punishment by the NFL, including suspension. The league is currently investigating the 29-year-old’s actions.
