Warriors star Draymond Green faces misdemeanor assault claim

Jul 13, 2016, 02:56

Shortly after the news of his arrest was confirmed, the folks at TMZ Sports were able to find a video filmed of the Green arrest.

Several people on social media reported Green had been at a bar in downtown East Lansing on Saturday night. Green played basketball for Michigan State and grew up in Saginaw, Mich.

According to the police, Green slapped the man during a confrontation that was instigated by the victim taunting Green.

He was released on a $200 bond and is scheduled to be back in court on July 20. However, if Green thought he had put his impulsiveness behind him, turns out it's a lot more hard to do than he imagined.

It is not clear if Green has hired an attorney. He is one of three players in Michigan State history with 1,000 career points (1,517 points) and 1,000 career rebounds.

Edmondson, a sociology major at Michigan State, turned 22 on Sunday.

Edmondson is from Canton, Ohio, so that's an easy place to start speculating about the former Spartan star's confrontation.

Green was previously selected to play for the Olympic men's basketball team in August.

Jerry Colangelo, the managing director for USA Basketball, said he and the committee are still looking into the matter and awaiting further details. The Cavaliers won the championship in game seven.

The Warriors on Monday morning issued a statement of acknowledgement: "We are aware of the news involving Draymond Green in MI over the weekend. No comment at this time".
