After initially facing misdemeanor charges of conspiracy to commit battery and a felony charge of battery with substantial bodily harm, New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara accepted a plea deal claiming no contest to a misdemeanor charge of breach the peace for his involvement in a fight that occurred in Las Vegas last February during Pro Bowl weekend.
