Davante Adams charged with misdemeanor assault for MNF shove

Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams has been charged with assault for shoving a recognized media worker at the Chiefs after Monday’s loss in Kansas City.

Adams was subpoenaed for an “intentional, manifest act” that inflicted “bodily harm,” according to court documents released Wednesday.

The man pushed by Adams, identified by police as Ryan Zebley, suffered whiplash, a headache and possibly a mild concussion from the incident, according to records. Zebley worked as a freelance photographer for ESPN’s Monday Night Football.

The indictment was filed in Kansas City District Court on Wednesday morning. Adams is due in court on November 10.

If convicted, Adams faces up to six months in prison or a fine of up to $1,000.

Adams apologized after the game, saying the nudge “was just mixed with frustration [Zebley] literally running in front of me.” The veteran player is being disciplined by the NFL, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

There is no timeline for an NFL decision, a source told ESPN’s Jeff Darlington. With the Raiders (1-4) in a bye week, the league is aware it doesn’t need to be as fast as normal.

Raiders coach Josh McDaniels expressed his support for Adams on Tuesday afternoon, saying the post-game incident was “an unfortunate situation.”

“We obviously don’t want any of our guys to do something like that,” McDaniels said. “He knows that. He’s well aware of it. But I know the person; I don’t think there was any intention on his part.

ESPN’s Paul Gutierrez and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
