Davante Adams has been charged with misdemeanour assault after shoving a cameraman in the Las Vegas Raiders defeat to the Kansan City Chiefs.

The LA Raiders wide receiver, who scored two touchdowns in the game, was visibly frustrated after the dramatic loss on Monday night, when a cameraman, who has since been named as Ryan Zebley, suddenly appeared in front of him. Davante Adams pushed him to the ground.

It has since been reported that Zebley filed a police report on the incident, claiming he was a victim of assault and suffered injuries in the incident.


In the postgame news conference, Adams apologised to the cameraman and gave his version of events in the incident.


“Before I say anything, I want to apologise to the guy running off the field and he ran and jumped in front of me.

I’m coming off the field the field and I bumped into him and pushed him. I think he ended up on the ground, so I want to say sorry to him because that was just frustration mixed with him running in front of me and I shouldn’t have responded that way and that’s how I initially responded.

I want to apologize to him for that.”


Head coach of the LA Raiders Josh McDaniels backed Davante Adams after he incident, claiming there was no intent from Adams.

“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 ask of us, whatever they need from us, obviously, we’ll comply.”

Davante Adams is set to appear in court on November 10th, while there is currently no timetable for a decision from the NFL regarding a suspension.
