After a heartbreaking loss to the Chiefs in Kansas City last season, Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams shoved a credentialed photographer.
The Raiders’ receiver apologized on social media, saying “sorry to the guy I pushed over after the game. Obviously very frustrated at the way the game ended and when he ran infront of me as I exited that was my reaction and I felt horrible immediately. Thats not me..MY APOLOGIES man hope you see this.”

Not long after the incident, Adams was charged with a misdemeanor assault because the photographer Ryan Zebley, reported suffering “whiplash and headache, possible minor concussion” after the incident.
Now, those charged are no more. According to the Kansas City Star, a prosecutor dismissed the charge on June 5.
“It is now considered a closed confidential case under Missouri law,” the Kansas City Star’s article reports.
The Star reports the photographer’s civil case against Adams, the Kansas City Chiefs, Las Vegas Raiders and others is still pending. It is unclear if Davante Adams will be punished by the league.
