Warriors' Draymond Green arrested on assault charges

Green was arrested on a misdemeanor assault charge after the incident.

Draymond Green, Golden State Warriors' all-star forward, could face up to 93 days in jail if convicted for reportedly assaulting a man in East Lansing, Michigan, on Sunday. He was released on a $200 bond that night after what police described a "basically an altercation between two guys". Green was arrested for an alleged assault over the weekend in East Lansing, Michigan, according to online court records.

The run-in with the football player actually stretched back to late Friday night/early Saturday morning, when the source says Green and the football player ran into each other at a local bar.

Green, 26, has yet to comment on the arrest.

"The police department is not confirming any arrest with that name", Lt. Scott Wrigglesworth, the East Lansing police department Public Information Officer, told MLive.com.

Green is among a dozen players who are expected to make up the U.S. team for the Rio Summer Games and he is scheduled to attend the men's Olympic basketball camp in Las Vegas on July 18-21.

First, the Warriors blew a 3-1 lead - during a series he was suspended a game for - and fell to the Cavaliers in Game 7 of the NBA Finals. The Warriors are aware of the altercation, saying, "at this point, we are collecting information and will have no further comment until we have a better understanding of the situation".

"I try to be a bright spot for the city, keep my nose clean", Green said in January.

In a text to ESPN, USA Basketball managing director Jerry Colangelo said, "We are still awaiting details".

Green was at the centre of much on-court controversy during the NBA playoffs, ultimately missing Game 5 of the NBA Finals after an accumulation of flagrant fouls during the postseason.
