Report: Davante Adams charged with misdemeanor assault for pushing cameraman after MNF loss

Davante Adams

Following the Monday night showdown between the Las Vegas Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs, Raiders star receiver Davante Adams let his frustration get the better of him after the wild 30-29 loss.

As Adams was leaving the field, a professional cameraman seemingly got in the way of the star receiver.

Instead of allowing him to move or stepping past the cameraman, Adams decided to strongly shove the man. The cameraman fell over onto his back, and Adams walked on unapologetically.

Now, it looks like he’s going to have to do a whole lot more than just apologize. According to a Wednesday report, a misdemeanor assault charge has been handed down to Adams.

NFL insider Ian Rapoport offered some insight into the potential outcomes that Adams faces.

With that in mind, there are some who are claiming that the push was not as malicious as the television broadcast made it seem.

Reporter Doug Gottlieb shared a different angle on Tuesday which did seem to show Adams accidentally bumping into the man before reflexively pushing him away.

Adams himself took to Twitter following the game to express his regret over the incident. Based on his words, it looks like it wasn’t much of an accident.

According to the varying opinions across social media at the moment, it seems some believe Adams deserves punishment from the law and NFL as a result of his actions, while others believe that the cameraman is simply taking advantage of a cash grab opportunity.

Whatever the case, the outcome of the situation is now in the hands of the Kansas City Police Department.

Fans can expect to hear an update on the case as Adams’ Nov. 10 court date approaches.

After the loss, the Raiders are now 1-4 on the season. Three of their losses have been by six points or less and two have been by two points or less.

As for Adams, he’s having another impressive season despite the losses. Through five games with his new team, Adams has recorded 29 receptions for 414 yards and five touchdowns.
