Former Michigan State University player and current Golden State Warriors star, Draymond Green, allegedly let his temper get the best of him early Sunday morning, July 10, and ended up in handcuffs.
The Detroit Free Press reports that Green was leaving Conrad’s Grill in East Lansing, Michigan around 2:30 a.m., when he got into an argument with another man.
Things escalated to the point where Green slapped the guy. Officers were already on the scene working late night patrol and witnessed the entire incident.
Green was arrested and hauled off to a local precinct where he was charged with assault and battery.

Green’s attorney waived his client’s right to a scheduled July 20 arraignment.
In doing so, Green acknowledges he understands the charges he faces and the possible penalties if he is found guilty. He also avoids having to attend an arraignment in person.
A pre-trial hearing will be set at a later date.
If convicted Green could face a maximum penalty of 93 days in jail, a $500 fine, or both.
