Officers were dispatched to the hospital. After speaking to the victim, they identified Kamara as the suspect.
Despite the report, the 26-year-old running back participated in the Pro Bowl on Sunday, the New York Post reported.
Following the game, Kamara booked and remained in jail Sunday night. His bail was set at $5,000 with a court hearing scheduled for Monday afternoon, according to the Associated Press, citing a jail official.
Kamara just completed his fifth season with the Saints. He signed a five-year, $75 million contract extension in 2020.
Neither Kamara’s representatives nor the Saints immediately responded to a request for comment, ESPN reported.
