Draymond Green has apparently struggled to shed his NBA Finals loss anger, taking out his frustrations on the home of his alma mater, East Lansing, Michigan. The former “Spartan Dawg” was arrested early Sunday morning near Grand River Dr, a common destination for Michigan State students with a litany of college bars and late night eateries.
Green was arrested at 2:28 a.m. ET Sunday and is scheduled for arraignment on July 20. No other details of the arrest were immediately available.
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.
If convicted, Green would face a maximum of 93 days in jail and a fine of $500.
East Lansing police confirmed that the altercation was between Green and another guy and no injuries were reported. At this point, it is unclear what ramifications this may have on the NBA nut-kicking leader’s 2016 season, as the NBA has taken a wait and see approach with similar issues under Commissioner Adam Silver.
I think they should let him off. The guy is trying to rid his memory of blowing a 3-1 series lead and decided he’d venture back to his college town to get his drink on. No harm in that. So he got a little drunk in his old stomping grounds and got into a little scuffle (probably a shoving match). Who hasn’t done that during alumni weekend?
People of East Lansing, while Draymond is in town, wear a cup..
