NFL superstar now facing police investigation after shoving man

Davante Adams is facing an investigation from the NFL – and now law enforcement after his actions on Monday.

TMZ Sports reported the photographer the Raiders star receiver pushed immediately went to police at Arrowhead Stadium and filed a police report, claiming to be a victim of an assault.

He told cops that he suffered “non-life threatening injuries” and was then taken to the hospital, the report stated.

Adams took out his frustration in Kansas City on the photographer after the Raiders’ heartbreaking 30-29 loss to the Chiefs. Las Vegas led the game 17-0 at one point, and the defeat dropped Adams’ Raiders to 1-4 in his first season with the team.

“I want to apologise to the guy, there was some guy running off the field, and he ran, like jumped in front of me coming off the field and I bumped into him, kind of pushed him, and he ended up on the ground,” Adams said after the game.

“So I wanted to say sorry to him for that because that was just frustration mixed with him literally just running in from of me.

“I shouldn’t have responded that way, but that’s how I initially responded. So, I want to apologise to him for that.”

The NFL is also looking into the incident, and the 29-year-old could face a suspension.

The Raiders’ last gasp in the game came on a deep fourth-and-1 pass from Derek Carr that sailed well over the heads of Adams and Hunter Renfrow after the two receivers collided during their routes.
