Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green was arrested Sunday on assault charges in East Lansing, Michigan, according to ESPN.
The 26-year-old was arrested at 2:28 a.m. ET Sunday and is scheduled for arraignment on July 20. In a statement, the Warriors stated:
At this point, we are collecting information and will have no further comment until we have a better understanding of the situation.
If convicted, Green would face a maximum of 93 days in jail and a fine of $500. Green 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 is set to join Team USA in August at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. [ESPN, Photo Instagram]
