Davante Adams Charged in Relation to His 'MNF' Postgame Shove

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams was charged with misdemeanor assault in relation to an incident involving a credentialed worker after the Raiders' Monday Night Football loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

A Kansas City (Missouri) Municipal Court citation obtained by on Wednesday (October 12) states that Adams "did, by an intentional, overt act, inflict bodily injury or cause an unlawful offensive contact" to the worker when he shoved him to the ground with both hands, "causing whiplash and headache," as well as a possible concussion.

On Tuesday (October 11), the victim filed a police report against Adams in relation to the incident, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported.

The police report states that the photographer "was pushed to the ground causing injury" and "made arrangements for private transport to the hospital for treatment at which time he called police."

Police said "the injuries are preliminary thought to be non-life threatening" and the incident is under investigation by the Kansas City Police Assault Unit, who will then work with the "city or state prosecutor to determine any applicable charges."

Pelissero had previously reported that "the league is reviewing the situation" involving Adams on Tuesday, citing sources with knowledge of the situation.

"Before I answer anything else, I want to apologize to the guy — some guy running off the field, and he ran, jumped in front of me when we're coming off the field and I bumped into him, kind of pushed him and I think he ended up on the ground," Adams told reporters after the game via Yahoo Sports. "I wanted to say sorry to him for that. That was frustration mixed with him running, literally running in front of me, and I shouldn't have responded that way. But that's how I initially responded so I want to apologize to him for that."

Adams also apologized for his behavior in a post shared on his verified Twitter account.

"Sorry to the guy I pushed over after the game," Adams said. "Obviously very frustrated at the way the game ended and when he ran infront of me as I exited that was my reaction and I felt horrible immediately. Thats not me..MY APOLOGIES man hope you see this."

Adams finished Monday's game with a season-best 124 yards and two touchdowns on three receptions.

The All-Pro wide receiver is scheduled to appear in court on November 10, 2022.
