“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 scheduled for arraignment on July 20. If convicted, he would face a maximum of 93 days in jail and a $500 fine.
Lt. Scott Wrigglesworth from the East Lansing Police Department told ESPN that he couldn’t confirm whether the assault was a punch or a slap but it was “not a shove.” He also said police were not called to the scene, but were already there as part of their normal patrol.
In a statement, the Warriors said they are “aware of news” involving Green.
“At this point, we are collecting information and will have no further comment until we have a better understanding of the situation,” the team said.
In a text to ESPN, USA Basketball managing director Jerry Colangelo said, “We are still awaiting details. No comment at this time.”
Green, 26, appeared in 81 games for the Warriors last season and started 23 games in Golden State’s playoff run to the NBA Finals, where they lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers in seven games. He missed Game 5 of the Finals for an accumulation of flagrant fouls throughout the postseason.
He played four seasons for Michigan State under coach Tom Izzo. Green is set to join Team USA in August at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
