Las Vegas Raiders All-Pro wide receiver Davante Adams is being sued for an alleged assault stemming from a Monday Night Football game against the Kansas City Chiefs last season.
David Hudnall of the Kansas City Star reported Park Zebley filed the complaint in Jackson County Circuit Court.
While Adams was charged with one count of misdemeanor assault in Kansas City municipal court and is scheduled to appear in court on June 26, Zebley—who alleged he feared for his life and suffered concussion symptoms, per Hudnall.. says that’s enough.
“A municipal misdemeanor battery charge is not sufficient,” he said. “I’m looking for justice. You can’t shove someone down and walk off like it didn’t happen. Not in real life.”
The suit named the Chiefs as well as Jackson County Sports Complex Authority and Landmark Events Staffing and alleged negligence on their part contributed to the shove happening. It also said Zebley received online death threats from fans when his identity was discovered.
As for the game, Kansas City defeated Adams’ Raiders 30-29.
He finished with three catches for 124 yards and two touchdowns, although he collided with teammate Hunter Renfrow on a failed fourth-down conversion in the final minute. Las Vegas fell to 1-4 on the season as a result of the loss.
