Sacramento Kings guard Darren Collison was arrested on a charge of domestic violence and booked into Placer County Jail Monday afternoon.

Police responded to a report of a woman who said she was being assaulted inside a home in Granite Bay, California. When deputies arrived, they took Collison into custody and charged him with one count of inflicting corporal injury to a spouse or cohabitant, and two misdemeanor bench warrants of driving on a suspended license.

Collison’s bail was set at $55,000, which he posted. He is scheduled for a court hearing on July 11. The Sacramento Kings issued the following statement regarding his arrest:

“We’ve been made aware of the situation. The Sacramento Kings condemn violence of any kind. We are gathering additional information and once all facts are known we will take appropriate steps.”

The former UCLA standout wrapped up his seventh season in the NBA back in April. The 29-year-old averaged 14 points and 4.3 assists per contest, playing in 74 games over the course of last season. This was his second season in Sacramento.
