Alvin Kamara: What makes a good running back

According to a report by ESPN’s Mike Triplett Sunday night, the New Orleans Saints and former Tennessee running back Alvin Kamara were arrested Sunday night in Las Vegas. Kamara was arrested for battery according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department report. Triplett’s report says Kamara was “charged with injuring someone at a nightclub” on Saturday night.

Kamara’s arrest comes the night of the NFL Pro Bowl game in which Kamara made his fifth consecutive appearance.

“Police say the alleged battery took place on Saturday,” Triplett’s report for ESPN said. “Officers were dispatched at approximately 5:50 p.m. local time Saturday to a hospital, where the victim said he was beaten at a nightclub on South Las Vegas Boulevard. The suspect was later identified as Kamara following a police investigation.
