Chris Lammons’ lawyer said the Kansas City Chiefs cornerback appeared in court in Las Vegas on Thursday after being charged with battery, resulting in significant bodily harm and conspiracy to commit violence.
The charges stem from an incident on Feb. 6 in Las Vegas in which three others have been charged, including star New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara.
Lammons was not asked to file a petition, according to his attorney, Ross Goodman. He filed a $ 5,000 bail after surrendering to authorities. He is due to appear in court again on March 8.
Kamara faces a battery charge, resulting in significant bodily injury. Video surveillance shows he hit a man about eight times before others in Kamara’s group continued to trample him several times on the ground in a Las Vegas casino over the Pro Bowl weekend, according to a police report released earlier this month. He was later released after providing bail.
The man, who was knocked unconscious, suffered a circuit breach in his right eye, among other things, according to the police report.
Lammons, 26, has appeared in 14 games over the last two seasons for the Chiefs, mostly on special teams.
He began his NFL career in 2019, playing in 12 games as a backup for the Miami Dolphins. He had one interception that season.
