LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara has been arrested in Las Vegas just hours after playing in the Pro Bowl at Allegiant Stadium.

On Saturday evening, officers were dispatched to a hospital where a person told them they had been battered at a nightclub on the Las Vegas Strip.
