Updates: Walker was Robbed...

Javon Walker's situation is updated by KVVU Fox 5 in Las Vegas.
LAS VEGAS -- NFL wide receiver Javon Walker was the victim of an apparent early morning robbery, according to Metro police.

Walker was found unconscious at about 7:19 a.m. Monday near the intersection of Koval Lane and Winnick Avenue, officers said.

The Oakland Raiders player was taken to Sunrise Medical Center’s Trauma unit, where he was listed in fair condition late Monday afternoon, hospital officials said.

Police said Walker had significant injuries.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist Norm Clarke, Walker was seen Saturday night at Tryst at the Wynn spraying the crowd with some of the 15 bottles of Dom Perignon Rose champagne he ordered.

Clarke also said Walker was at Body English at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino until 6:30 a.m. Monday and that his first round of champagne cost him $15,000.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
So the good news is he's in fair condition, he was throwing around expensive champagne and ran up a fifteen thousand dollar bill at another bar. How do you spend that much money in a bar? I guess it's easy once you've taken a part in 15 bottles of Dom Perignon at the previous bar. With that much alcohol in your system and throwing around that much money, it's easy to see why he became a target.

About his injury:

Treatment may include:

  • A consultation with an ophthalmologist (physician who specializes in comprehensive eye care) may be necessary for a complete evaluation of the eye.

  • Some fractures do not have to be treated immediately. Depending on the injury, time may be allowed for the swelling and bruising to go away before the fracture is treated.

  • Usually, the double vision will resolve without treatment in three to four days.

  • Surgery may be indicated for severe fractures, or if there is involvement of the eye. Surgery may be performed immediately, or up to several days after the trauma.
