Draymond Green hasn’t had the best of reputations as of late, and it appears he has added to the “bad guy” reputation he has been gaining this past weekend.
According to a report by MLive.com, Green was arrested early Sunday morning in East Lansing, Michigan, where Michigan State University is located. While the East Lansing police won’t say it was Green, it is pretty obvious by their statement who they are talking about.
“The police department is not confirming any arrest with that name,” said Lt. Scott Wrigglesworth, the East Lansing police department Public Information Officer. “What I can confirm is that we did arrest a current NBA basketball player this weekend and he was arrested for assault. That’s all we’re confirming right now.”
Green is a former Spartan basketball player and a member of this year’s Olympic basketball team.
On the court, this was the finest season of Green’s young NBA career. He averaged 14.0 points, 9.5 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks in 34.7 minutes per game in 2015-16 for the Golden State Warriors, but as the playoffs wore on, some of his antics and behavior became the talk of the league.
There was his kick to the groin of Steven Adams during the Western Conference finals and his verbal and physical battle with supposed friend LeBron James during the NBA Finals as well.
He will have 10 days to surrender himself to authorities in East Lansing and will be arraigned at that time on assault charges. Details of what exactly took place are not yet available to the public, according to the MLive.com report.
