Los Angeles Clippers center Willie Reed was jailed Sunday on a domestic violence charge, the Miami Herald first reported. He was booked at approximately 3:00 A.M, according to multiple media reports.

Reed was sent to the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center, a prison located in South Miami, Florida. He was released at approximately 1:00 P.M.

Following from the Miami Herald:

Miami-Dade jail records show Reed, 27, who signed with the Los Angeles Clippers last month, was still in jail as on 7:30 a.m. He was charged with misdemeanor battery.

Details about the alleged crime were not immediately available. He was arrested in downtown Miami at the Marquis condo, 1100 Biscayne Blvd.

NBC6 South Florida released a video that shows a judge ordering Reed on Sunday to stay at least 500 feet away from his wife at all times.

Reed spent last season as a back-up center on the Miami Heat, appearing in 72 games with the club. He left the team to sign a free-agent deal with the Los Angeles Clippers in July.

Reed, who went undrafted in 2011, has played two professional seasons with the Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets. He holds career-averages of 5.1 points and 4.1 rebounds per contest.
