"Oakland Raiders wide receiver Javon Walker was found unconscious on a Las Vegas street early Monday morning, the apparent victim of a robbery.

The police report of the incident says that officers responded to a report of a downed man at Winnick Avenue and Koval Lane in Las Vegas at approximately 7:19 a.m. local time.

They found an unconscious male, who was then transported to Sunrise Hospital with "significant injuries." Walker remained hospitalized on Monday night.

Las Vegas television station KTNV confirmed that the Walker listed in the police report was indeed the professional football player.

Walker was released in February by the Denver Broncos after a knee injury cut short his season. He then signed a six-year, $55 million contract with the Raiders, hoping to recapture the magic that made him a Pro Bowler with the Green Bay Packers in 2004 and helped him to 1,084 receiving yards for Denver in 2006."

As Dave Chapelle would say welcome to Oakland B**** lol

Vegas is a 24 hour a day town. Action never stops.

I am not familiar with Vegas or what part of town he was in.

Main drag or shady district?..idonno:

Walker was probably doing what lots of people do, go to Vegas to have a good time. He can afford it.

It appears that he's a victim here, not a perpetrator like so many other players we read about.

All of what you say is true..... but you're just asking for it as a recognizable professional athlete if you're out & about in a city like that, that early in the morning i'm guessing by himself.

I used to live in Las Vegas for over three and a half years. I worked at the Flamingo Hilton and travelled up and down Koval to avoid the traffic on Las Vegas Blvd. I actually know the area very well.

If I remember correctly, Koval Lane begins where the Wynn golf course is located at. Winnick I'm not sure exactly where it is but I would think it's closer to the Imperial Palace more than any other hotel. Behind the Imperial Palace to be exact.

I know for certain that there is a nightclub right there. Somewhere right by that restaurant called 'Alan Alberts' or similar (My memory is a bit hazy but I think I've got it right). I do not know the name of the club but it was a dance club and they're open until seven AM. I used to go to that club every so often. Maybe he was leaving there? Don't know. Pure speculation but there WAS a club there. No doubt about that.

Of course, this was back in 2001 so the club may not be there anymore or the scenery may have changed significantly since then.

The Koval Lane area is actually not as shady as 'Naked City' which is what us Las Vegans used to call the area around the Stratosphere but it IS known for robberies. There's a lot of criminal element lurking around looking for the rich people walking around. Remember, this is very near the Venetian and the Bellagio, two of Las Vegas most luxurious hotels. There's plenty of targets for the criminal element to justify hanging around the area. It's not on the strip so the police aren't necessarily around in great force on Koval Lane like they are on the strip (Las Vegas Blvd).

It's not so much a shady area but just a lack of security around there more than anything else.

7am? If you're sleeping at 7am in Las Vegas, you're crazy. Everyday me and my ex would go to Arizona Charlies and indulge in their 77 cent breakfast special before 7am. People say that New York is the city that never sleeps? I scoff at that notion after living in Las Vegas.

It never occurred to me that someone would expect a curfew in Las Vegas. I always allow 3 or 4 days after returning for R&R, rather to catch up on sleep.

I've done the bus ride back to the strip from Freemont Street, still up playing poker, and rarely back to the room by 7:00.

I didn't read through all of the reports, but was anything said about approximately how long Walker had been there when found? It is truly sad that there are people out and waiting for an opportunity to injure and kill someone in their efforts to steal.
I wish the young man a speedy recovery with no lasting affects from the assault and battery.

First of all, if you are going to spray champagne, why the hell are you using the expensive stuf. Dom Perignon goes for over $100 a bottle in a store, no telling what it goes for in a club. What a waste. :glasshalffull:

Second, did he not learn anything when his teammate died in his arms over just such an incident. Wow, I hate to get down on someone who has been the victim of a crime. But, just WOW. :headhurts:

The more I read about this story the less "sympathetic" he gets. No, of course nobody deserves to be beaten and robbed but you expect to see a certain amount of basic "survival instinct" out of people and some nominal degree of common sense. You particularly expect to see it out of someone who has gone through a reality check like Javon Walker did when he got to hold a dying teammate in his arms following a drive-by shooting. That he's just plain stupid enough to make himself that big a target is mind boggling. For the record "stupid" is exactly the word I was looking for. You don't call it "immature" anymore when you're speaking of a 30 year old man. Vince Young might be immature. Javon Walker is stupid.

Now, for the first time, Bellagio reps are speaking out about the incident. News 3's Katherine Whaley explains they're not the only ones who have doubts about those online reports.

n a statement to News 3, a spokesperson for MGM-Mirage, which owns Bellagio, says this:

The facts that have been reported regarding the incident involving Javon Walker are incorrect. I am unable to provide further detail out of respect for the Metro investigation which is currently underway.

About 2,000 surveillance cameras capture round-the clock views inside and outside of the hotel. And the Bellagio is working with Metro on the investigation.

While the details of exactly what happened in the hours leading up to the assault remain sketchy, we do know Javon Walker was attacked and whoever is responsible is still out there.

Looks like Walker might have made the whole thing up:

"Las Vegas police say they've made an arrest in the robbery and beating case involving NFL player Javon Walker.

Lt. Clint Nichols says one man was charged Tuesday with multiple felonies including kidnapping and robbery and police are looking for a second suspect.

He says Walker got into a vehicle with the two men early June 16 before he was found beaten and unconscious on a side street near the Las Vegas Strip.

Walker told police $3,000 in cash and about $100,000 in jewelry were taken."
