According to reports, the man, who was a freelancer working for ESPN’s Monday Night Football, filed a report to Kansas City police, who said they will investigate the incident. The man was transported to a hospital, according to police, and was treated for injuries that were “preliminarily thought to be non-life threatening.” Kansas City police said the incident will be investigated by its assault unit detectives and the investigation is not expected to last more than 1-2 days.
During his postgame news conference, Davante Adams apologized to the man he pushed, claiming that he jumped in front of him.
“Before I say anything, I want to apologize to the guy (camera person) running off the field and he ran and jumped in front of me. I’m coming off the field and I bumped into him and pushed him. I think he ended up on the ground, so I want to say sorry to him because that was just frustration mixed with him running in front of me and I shouldn’t have responded that way and that’s how I initially responded. I want to apologize to him for that.”
Adams later took to Twitter to deliver another apology for his actions. He wrote:
“Sorry to the guy I pushed over after the game. 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 not me..MY APOLOGIES man hope you see this.”
