After a heartbreaking loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, arguably the NFL’s best receiver and top Las Vegas Raiders wideout Davante Adams was visibly frustrated on the touchline.

After tossing his helmet on the sidelines, Adams made his way to the away team’s dressing room at Arrowhead Stadium. As he is about to enter the tunnel, a cameraman is seen stopping Adams from moving to the other side of the tunnel entrance. As a result, Adams pushed the cameraman to the ground.

Adams took to Twitter shortly after the game to apologize to the cameraman.

“Sorry about the guy I pushed after the game,” Davante Adams wrote on Oct. 11. “Obviously very frustrated with how the game ended and when he ran in front of me on exit that was my reaction and I felt horrible straight away. That’s not me.. MY EXCUSES man I hope you see that.”

On Monday, TMZ reported that the cameraman Adams pushed had filed a police report claiming “non-life-threatening” injuries.

On Wednesday, Oct. 13, Adams was charged with assault in Kansas City Municipal Court for shoving the cameraman, according to court documents. Adams’ court hearing is scheduled for November 14th.

The NFL is also getting involved in the situation.

“The NFL is expected to impose some form of discipline on Adams,” Pro Football Network NFL insider Aaron Wilson wrote Oct. 13. “It just depends on how strict the discipline will be. The league obviously doesn’t want that to happen again and will lead by example in how they deal with the situation.”

Twitter users reacted to Adams being accused of pushing the cameraman.

“Can we follow up on the man he attacked? I want to offer my condolences and hope he’s okay,” one Twitter user wrote.

“Sorry but that’s not what I think is assault, it might be court rules but what happened what my own kids do to each other and what kids do in jump houses all the time!! I think he should be disciplined by the NFL but that’s a bridge too far,” wrote another user.

I mean, what Adams did was wrong, but that kind of thing happens every day in bars or even on the street – a cop wouldn’t arrest anyone for it this is ridiculous and a money grab,” wrote another user.

“Adams needs to call this guy and settle up. It’s pretty much legal blackmail, but you can’t put yourself in that position,” wrote another user.

“In order to recover any financial losses, Adams has filed the same charges against Hunter Renfrow,” wrote another user.

Davante has been a raider for less than a season and already has a criminal record… hate to see that #FreeDavante,” wrote another user.

“Call me proud, but I’m not making a police report because someone pushed me. I just push you back and take it from there,” wrote another user.

“I wish a player would push me. I’m going to teach Tom Brady and Josh Allen how to flop,” wrote another user.

“Call me proud, but I’m not making a police report because someone pushed me. I just push you back and take it from there,” wrote another user.
