Warriors’ Green arrested on assault charges

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green was arrested Sunday on assault charges in East Lansing, Michigan.

Police told ESPN that Green was arrested at an East Lansing restaurant and that the victim was a man.

“It was basically an altercation between two guys,” police said. “There’s no injuries. He was released with a $200 bond on Sunday.”

Green is scheduled for arraignment on July 20. If convicted, he would face a maximum of 93 days in jail and a $500 fine.

In a statement, the Warriors said they are “aware of news” involving Green.

“At this point, we are collecting information and will have no further comment until we have a better understanding of the situation,” the team said.

Green, 26, appeared in 81 games for the Warriors last season and started 23 games in Golden State’s playoff run to the NBA Finals, where they lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers in seven games. He missed Game 5 of the Finals for an accumulation of flagrant fouls throughout the postseason.

He played four seasons for Michigan State under coach Tom Izzo. Green is set to join Team USA in August at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
