Golden State Warriors Star Forward Draymond Green Arrested For Alleged Assault

Golden State Warriors star forward Draymond Green was arrested in Michigan early Sunday morning on suspicion of assaulting a man, local police said today.

Green was arrested at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday for the alleged assault in the downtown business district of East Lansing, Michigan, according to East Lansing police Lt. Scott Wriggelsworth.

East Lansing is home to Michigan State University, the alma mater of Green, who helped lead the Warriors to the NBA championship in 2015 and was named to his first All-Star team this year as Golden State won an NBA-record 73 regular season games before losing in the NBA Finals.

Wriggelsworth said the victim in the alleged assault Sunday was not injured.

Green was taken to East Lansing City Jail, where he posted $200 bail and was released. He has 10 days from Sunday to be arraigned in the case, which will be prosecuted by the East Lansing City Attorney’s Office, according to Wriggelsworth.

The Warriors issued a statement after news broke this morning of Green’s arrest.

“We are aware of news involving Draymond Green in Michigan over the weekend. 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.
