Golden State Warrior Draymond Green arrested for assault.





Golden State All Star forward Draymond  Green was arrested on assault charges in East Lansing, Michigan. Green was arrested at an East Lansing restaurant called Conrad’s Grill. The Golden State forward reportedly hit a man. Draymond Green’s arrest for misdemeanor assault in East Lansing on Sunday is being reviewed by USA Basketball, the governing body over the American Olympic team that will compete in the Rio Games next month. “USA Basketball is aware of this news,” the organization said in a statement Monday. “At this point, we are collecting all related information and will have no further comment until we have a better understanding of the situation.”

Draymond-Green-595x343Craig Miller, chief communications officer for USA Basketball, said he wasn’t aware of a player ever being dismissed from the U.S. national team. Green was at the Dublin Square pub and restaurant from roughly 12:45 to 1:30 a.m., said Nick Guerrant, an employee who was working the door that night. Green was traveling with a group of about five friends, Guerrant said, and was not involved in any altercations or arguments at that location.

“It was basically an altercation between two guys,” police said. “There’s no injuries. He was released with a $200 bond on Sunday.”

Green is set to appear before Judge Richard Ball and if convicted of assault or assault and battery, Green could face 93 days in jail, a $500 fine or both. Ball has been a 54B District judge since 1992.

In a statement made by the Warriors they claim they are aware of the news and they are waiting for more information to come out.

Draymond Green 26, appeared in 81 games for the warriors in the regular season. He started in 23 games for the Warriors in the playoffs until they eventually lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Finals. Green played 4 seasons at Michigan State under Tom Izzo and is expected to play in the Rio Olympics in August.
