Davante Adams Misdemeanor Assault Charge Dropped for Pushing Photographer – UnlistedNews

Prosecutors dropped a misdemeanor assault charge filed last October against Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams for pushing a photographer to the ground when he walked off the field after a loss at Kansas City.

The case filed in Kansas City municipal court was dismissed on June 5, the Kansas City Star reported.

Adams’ attorney, JR Hobbs, declined to comment.

Kansas City, Missouri police said Adams pushed Ryan Zebley to the ground as he ran off the field after the Raiders lost 30-29 to the Chiefs on Oct. 10. Police at the time called it an “intentional and overt act” that resulted in whiplash, a headache, and a possible minor concussion.

Adams apologized in his post-game comments to the media and later on Twitter.

“He jumped in front of me going off the field. I pushed him. He ended up on the ground,” Adams said after the game. “I want to apologize to him for that. It was just frustration mixed with him actually running in front of me.”

Zebley was carrying video equipment for a local production company hired to cover the game. He filed a civil lawsuit against Adams, the Raiders and the Chiefs in May, saying he was attacked online and feared for his safety immediately after the incident.

That lawsuit filed in Jackson County Circuit Court is ongoing, the Kansas City Star reported.
