New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara was arrested on a battery charge on Sunday in Las Vegas after being suspected of harming someone at a nightclub following the Pro Bowl game, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

Officers said they were called to a hospital about 5:50 p.m. local time Saturday after a person reported a battery at a nightclub. Later, they discovered that Kamara had allegedly battered the victim.

Kamara was taken into custody without altercation after playing and catching four passes for 23 yards for the NFC in Sunday’s Pro Bowl. Las Vegas police then placed the running back into the Clark County Detention Center on a charge of violence resulting in significant physical harm.

Kamara was still in detention as of Sunday night. His bail is set at $5,000, and a trial date is slated for Monday, according to a prison official.

Neither Kamara’s agents or the Saints replied to a request for clarification.

“We are aware of the matter, but will decline further comment at this time,” the NFL said in a statement to CNN.

Kamara had 1,337 yards from scrimmage and nine touchdowns this season, earning him a spot in his fifth Pro Bowl in five seasons. In 2017, the 26-year-old was named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.
