Kamara, 26, was taken into custody, where he was booked on charges of battery resulting in substantial bodily harm.

According to a statement from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, “on February 5th at appoximately 5:50 PM, the LVMPD patrol officers were dispatched to a local hospital where a person was reporting a battery.” According to the press release, the victim reported to being battered at a nightclub located in the 3500 block of South Las Vegas Boulevard.

The LVMPD states an investigation into the incident is still ongoing.

Kamara is tied for most rushing touchdowns in a single NFL game with six, and he has already amassed 4,248 yards rushing in just five seasons in the NFL. Kamara was in Las Vegas for the NFL Pro Bowl, a game where Kamara played on Sunday and made four catches for 23 yards. Kamara’s NFC team lost in a 35 to 41 contest against the AFC.

Kamara was named NASCAR’s Growth and Engagement Advisor on June 20, 2021. Since taking on the role, Kamara has worn a special helmet visor in pre-game warmups, which features the NASCAR logo.

An attempt to reach NASCAR for a statement on the arrest of Kamara has gone unanswered at the time of this story being published, but will be added in if a statement is provided.
