LAS VEGAS - Alvin Kamara has pleaded no contest to a lesser, misdemeanor charge for his role in a violent encounter that landed him in handcuffs last year. 

KLAS reported Tuesday Kamara's plea deal means he'll avoid prison. Instead, he'll take up 30 hours of community service and will pay more than $100,000 toward the victim's medical bills.

The star running back was formally charged — along with three others — back in February 2023, a full year after they were caught on video pummeling the victim, Darnell Greene. Greene told investigators he was knocked to the ground and beaten after getting into a shoving match with Kamara outside an elevator. 

It's unclear whether the outcome of the criminal case may lead to any discipline from the NFL this coming season.
