Golden State star Draymond Green arrested for assault

The case will be prosecuted through the East Lansing City Attorney's Office.

MLive first reported the incident, and in further coverage add that Green was arrested on assault and battery charges, the maximum penalty for which would be a $500 fine and/or 90 days jail time. Lt. Wrigglesworth has also stated that the police were not called on the scene, but were present in the area as part of their normal patrol routine.

"This is fairly common for a college town", Yeadon said.

In a statement, the Warriors said the team was "aware" of the situation, but little else.

The East Lansing Police Department arrested Green at 2:28 a.m., and he was released on $200 bond.

"No one saw what happened", general manager Chris Sonie said. "He came in and ordered food and took off". According to eyewitness reports, a man at Conrad's Grill repeatedly harassed and taunted the Warriors big man, who eventually responded by slapping his face.

Messages left with Wrigglesworth by USA TODAY Sports were not immediately returned. The Warriors released a statement to the press basically saying, "We heard about the incident, and we're looking into it".

Green is among a dozen players who are expected to make up the United States team for the Rio Summer Games and he is scheduled to attend the men's Olympic basketball camp in Las Vegas on July 18-21.

In a text to ESPN, USA Basketball managing director Jerry Colangelo said, "We are still awaiting details".

After signing a five-year, $85 million contract extension with the Warriors following the 2015 season, Green donated $3.1 million to his alma mater. He was originally drafted 35th overall in the 2012 National Basketball Association draft.

Green, 26, was arrested for assault Sunday in East Lansing, Michigan.
