Draymond Green reaches plea deal in assault case, Michigan court clerk says
EAST LANSING, Mich (KTVU) -- Golden State Warriors player Draymond Green has accepted a plea deal in connection with the assault a fan earlier this month in East Lansing, court records show.
Ingham County Court records show show that the NBA star's plea agreement calls for:
- A $500 fine.
- $60 jail restitution.
- The misdemeanor assault charge will be reduced to a civil infraction if Green avoids any further criminal offenses and avoids contact with the victim for a year.
Earlier this month, the East Lansing Police Department reported that Green was outside of a restaurant at around 2:30 am on July 10 when he got into an altercation with a man. Police say Green struck the man, who was not injured.
Green was arrested at the scene and led away from the area in handcuffs. According to court documents, Green had been charged with assault and battery.
Green posted a $200 bond and was released from custody.
Immediately after the incident, The Golden State Warriors released a statement: “We are aware of news involving Draymond Green in Michigan over the weekend. At this point, we are collecting information and will have no further comment until we have a better understanding of the situation.”
Green could not be reached for comment.
