Draymond Green is spending his time this summer preparing the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janero, Brazil. In under two weeks, Team USA will gather for their first official practices. You might have seen Green on snapchat training and preparing for the Olympics back home in Michigan. Now, going back home might have put Green in a little bit of trouble.
According to a report from Brendan F. Quinn of MLive.com, Draymond was arrested yesterday on assault charges in East Lansing, Michigan.
Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green — the former Michigan State star and member of this summer’s United States Olympic men’s basketball team — was arrested for assault Sunday in East Lansing, MLive learned Monday.
The details of Green’s arrest are unknown at this time.
“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 has 10 days to return to East Lansing and be arraigned on the charge in the city’s attorney office. His arrest report is not yet available online.
Green, 26, did not immediately return a call and message for comment on Monday morning.
There will be more details on this story as they become available. As of now neither Draymond Green, team USA Basketball president Jerry Colangelo or the Golden State Warriors have not released a statement.
Draymond Green reportedly slapped a heckler at an East Lansing nightclub, according to Evan Sernoffsky of the San Fransisco Chronicle.
