Davante Adams charged with assault after Chiefs game

The Star Raiders wide receiver has been charged with assault in Kansas City after he pushed a photographer near the tunnel that left Monday’s game.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams has been charged with assault for pushing a photographer to the ground as he left the field after a loss in Kansas City.

Police in Kansas City, Missouri, said Adams pushed Ryan Zebley to the ground while running off the field following the Raiders’ 30-29 loss to the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium Monday night. Police called it a “premeditated, overt act” that caused whiplash, a headache and possibly a mild concussion.

Charges were filed in the Kansas City District Court on Wednesday morning.

Adams apologized to the media in his post-game comments and later on Twitter.

“He jumped in front of me when he came off the field. I kind of pushed him. He landed on the floor,” Adams said after the game. “I would like to apologize to him for that. That was just frustration mixed with him really just running in front of me.

“I shouldn’t have reacted like that, but that’s how I reacted. I would like to apologize to him for that.”

The NFL is also investigating Adams’ actions. A person familiar with the process told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Adams could face possible punishment, including a fine or suspension.

Raiders coach Josh McDaniels said Tuesday he supports Adams and will cooperate with any investigation.

Adams had three catches for 124 yards and two touchdowns in the game. In his debut season with the Raiders, he has 29 catches for 414 yards and five TDs.
