A responding officer wrote that as he was being handcuffed and arrested Green said "some excited utterances, including that he was sorry for slapping the subject and wanted to speak with him to make things right".
On Tuesday, Edmondson's lawyer alleged his client's "life had been forever altered" by the slap from Green outside a bar on Sunday morning. "At no point, ever, did Draymond punch anyone". Green bumped into Edmondson and words were exchanged before Edmondson said he was choked by two men with Green before employees led Edmondson away to calm the situation. Edmondson said he told Green, "last night wasn't cool" and Green reacted by poking him in the shoulder. The Golden State Warriors have already released a statement regarding the incident but have decided they won't comment further until more details are released.
Edmondson, who redshirted his freshman season (2012) played in all 14 games last season, recording a career-high 25 tackles and two fumble recoveries.
The NBA player also said to Edmondson that "I pay for n-as like you scholarships". He was booked and lodged in East Lansing Police Department jail and was released after posting bail ($200). Edmondson says he told Green, "Hey bro, you can at least say 'Excuse me'".
"On Saturday night, Draymond and I were eating in East Lansing". In an interview posted on ESPN Tuesday, Green admitted that he can not put himself in "certain situations" being a public figure. "My legal team is handling it". A pretrial hearing will then be scheduled, at which it will determined if there is a "resolution to the case", according to East Lansing City Attorney Thomas Yeadon. "It's something that I'll learn from and just move on", Green said. Allegedly, Green and his group bumped into Edmondson at Rick's bar on Friday night and asked him, "Do you know you I am?"
The Brazilian - who will play for his country in next month's Olympics - played for both the Warriors and Cavs this past season.
