Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams landed himself in a world of trouble this past week when he shoved a cameraman in a moment of frustration.
The incident was captured on film, no doubt complicating the matter even further for Adams.

Adams ended up getting charged with misdemeanor assault in the aftermath.
On Wednesday, during a session with reporters, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was asked about the incident.
Given his relationship with Adams, Rodgers didn’t hold back.
“I was surprised,” Rodgers said.
“I was definitely surprised. I love Davante, reached out to him after the game. I hadn’t seem the clip yet but, yeah, I was surprised.”
When pressed on whether he was taken more aback by Adams’ actions or by the legal ramifications, Rodgers revealed he was surprised “more [by] the charge.”
Rodgers’ allegiance to Adams despite okaying him being traded away this summer is fascinating.
Adams has been quite open about why he wanted to get away from Rodgers in the offseason.
It will be interesting to see where Adams goes from here. The shoved cameraman has already spoken with a law firm about next steps. What those steps will end up entailing is unclear.
Although Adams apologized after the fact, the police report from the incident reportedly suggests that the man he shoved went to the hospital for a headache, whiplash, and a possible concussion.
If convicted on the charges brought against him, Adams faces up to six months in jail or a fine of up to $1,000.
Rodgers is obviously no stranger to drama. Between his new girlfriend feuding with his ex-girlfriend and all the suspicious imagery of him that has emerged in recent months – it has been one thing after another with him. But at least he has stayed clear of any legal troubles.

That’s more than what can be said about his ex-star wide receiver.
How will this unfortunate saga ultimately end for Adams?
Time will tell.
