Packers player responds to Davante Adams camera man incident

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers commented on the Davante Adams situation, where has been charged for shoving a cameraman after the Las Vegas Raiders’ game on Monday.

Following the Las Vegas Raiders-Kansas City Chiefs game on Monday Night Football, wide receiver Davante Adams had the spotlight on him after he shoved a cameraman as he walked to the tunnel of GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. Shortly thereafter, a police report was filed. Then on Wednesday, Adams was officially charged with misdemeanor assault.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was asked about Adams being charged when speaking with the media on Wednesday, and said that he was “surprised.” When asked if he was surprised by the shove or the charge, Rodgers replied with “more the charge.”

Packers safety and Adams’ former teammate, Adrian Amos, also commented on the incident on Twitter, saying that while it was wrong, he didn’t “beat dude up or nothing.”

Left tackle David Bakhtiari also chimed in, tweeting out “My man @tae15adams really like that! He told people to never cross him.”

The Raiders had lost the game 30-29, where on Las Vegas’ final drive, Adams’ catch along the sideline was ruled incomplete, and then collided with fellow wide receiver Hunter Renfrow on a fourth-and-one. After the game, the photographer walked across the tunnel, where Adams was walking towards. The wide receiver then shoved the cameraman to the ground.

Adams apologized to the photographer both to the media and on Twitter. After the charges were made official, Adams has apparently deleted the apology from his Twitter account.

The since deleted tweet read:

“Sorry to the guy I pushed over after the game,” Adams wrote, h/t The Athletic. “Obviously 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. Thats (sic) not me..MY APOLOGIES man hope you see this.”

The citations on the charges read that Adams “did, by an intentional, overt act, inflict bodily injury or cause an unlawful offensive contact.” The citation also noted that the photographer had suffered a headache, whiplash, and possible concussion from the shove.

A court date has been set for Thursday, Nov. 10.
