Photographer who was shoved by Davante Adams files a police report against NFL star

A photographer who was shoved to the ground by Davante Adams has now filed a police report against the NFL star.

The man says he was the 'victim of an assault', claiming he was actually injured during the incident and was subsequently hospitalised, according to TMZ.

In the wake of the Las Vegas Raiders' 30-29 loss against the Kansas City Chiefs, Adams' temper got the better of him and he lashed out at a bystander as he made his way from the field.


The force of the push sent the person crashing to the ground, all while Adams himself casually walked away into the tunnel.

It's understood that innocent bystander was actually an official photographer and he's pretty angry – so much so that he spoke to police at Arrowhead Stadium.

Reports from TMZ say local law enforcement "will coordinate with the applicable city or state prosecutor to determine any applicable charges".


Speaking in the locker room after the game, the wide receiver told media: "I want to apologise to the guy. There was some guy running off the field, and he ran, like, jumped in front of me coming off the field and I bumped into him, kind of pushed him, and he ended up on the ground.

"So I wanted to say sorry to him for that because that was just frustration mixed with him literally just running in front of me. I shouldn't have responded that way, but that's how I initially responded. So, I want to apologise to him for that."


Raider head coach Josh McDaniels also spoke about the incident in his press conference.

"I know that was an unfortunate situation," McDaniels said.

"We obviously don't want any of our guys to be doing anything like that. He knows that. He's very well aware of that."

"But I know the person. I don't think there was any intent behind it on his part. But whatever they [the NFL] ask of us, whatever they need from us, obviously, we'll comply."


Fox Sports suggests the NFL is also looking into the incident with the 29-year-old facing a possible suspension if he's punished for his actions.
