Davante Adams was charged with misdemeanor assault for pushing down a photographer on October 10, 2022.

The photographer was transported to the hospital to be treated for whiplash, a headache, and possibly a minor concussion.

After the game, Adams apologized for pushing the photographer and said “Sorry to the guy I pushed over after the game. I was very frustrated at the way the game ended and when he ran in front of me as I exited that was my reaction and I felt horrible immediately,”

He also apologized on social media saying “I want to apologize to the guy, some guy was running off the field, and he ran, like jumping in front of me coming off the field and I bumped into him, kind of pushed him, and he ended up on the ground. So I wanted to say sorry to him for that because that was just frustration mixed with him just running in from of me. I shouldn’t have responded that way, but that’s how I initially responded. So, I want to apologize to him for that.”

Adams is facing a possible fine and/or suspension from the NFL and although he had apologized, he still seriously injured the photographer and it was not an accident.

Adams has been the Raiders’ best receiver this season, catching 29 passes for 414 yards and five touchdowns in five games. If he is suspended, more pressure will be placed on receivers Hunter Renfrow and Mack Hollins. Albert Wilson and Keelan Cole will also likely see more playing time.

While NFL is still reviewing it, it was a major hit to Los Angeles fans and it may be the end of this star player’s career.
