LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The 8 News Now I-Team has obtained the arrest report for Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Chris Lammons in connection to the reported beating involving New Orleans Saints player Alvin Kamara at The Cromwell outside of a Las Vegas Strip nightclub on Feb. 5.
Kamara was named a suspect in the beating before the NFL Pro Bowl on Feb. 6. Kamara was interrogated and arrested following the game.
Lammons turned himself into police on Thursday morning, records showed. He has since posted bail. The I-Team first reported a warrant was out for his arrest Wednesday.
According to court records, the investigation into those allegedly involved continued after Kamara’s arrest. Lammons was named a suspect earlier this week, along with Percy Ahmaad and Darrin Christopher Young, court records show and the I-Team first reported.
Initial reports from police stated that the victim, Darnell Greene, was interviewed at a local hospital where he told investigators that several men at Drai’s nightclub had beaten him. He could only describe one of the suspects, who police later identified as Kamara.
Greene told police that he was waiting outside an elevator alongside a group of people, including the four suspects, the morning of Feb. 5. When the elevator doors opened, Kamara put his hand on Greene’s chest to stop him from entering the elevator, police said.
According to police, after Greene pushed Kamara’s hand off his chest, Kamara shoved him before another suspect, identified as Lammons, punched Greene and knocked him back against a wall.
The documents state that Kamara then lunged towards Greene and punched him several times before Greene fell unconscious. Once Greene was on the ground, Kamara beat him three more times before Lammons, Young, and Harris joined in and began stomping on him.
Police identified Lammons as a suspect by comparing social media photos and surveillance footage from Lammons’ hotel and from the limo that drove the group away after the incident.
According to the arrest report, between social media photos and video surveillance, Lammons has the same hairstyle, the same necklace and bracelet and a scar on his right cheek.
After comparing the photo and video, the warrant states that detectives obtained a search warrant for the surveillance video and audio recording inside the limo.
The video shows the group entering the limo, and all of them talking about the beating. Police explain that Lammons was referred to several times by people inside the limo as “Chris,” further confirming his identity to investigators.
Surveillance videos from inside the Vdara Hotel and Casino showed Lammons being dropped off by the limo, entering the hotel area, using the elevators and going into his room after the incident.
A records check by Vdara showed the room was registered to a Christopher Lammons, with a date of birth that indicated it to be Lammons’ father, police said.
In addition to hotel and limo surveillance video, police compared Lammons’ driver’s license photo to a picture on his social media account and, after this, police was able to confirm Lammons as a suspect in the beating.
Police also used NFL records to link Lammons to Kamara stating they both played on the New Orleans Saints football team in 2018 with Lammons being on the practice squad.
All four men face charges of conspiracy to commit battery and battery with substantial bodily harm. They are due in court in March.
