Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green was arrested Sunday in East Lansing, Mich., as first reported by and later confirmed by ESPN.

Green was arrested at 2:28 a.m. ET Sunday and is scheduled for arraignment on July 20. East Lansing Police issued this statement to ESPN:

The Warriors issued a statement Monday morning:

Green, a member of the Team USA basketball squad headed to the Rio Olympics next month, was a star basketball player at Michigan State University, which is located in East Lansing.

Green, 26, is coming off his best NBA season and his first All-Star appearance. He helped lead the Warriors to an NBA-record 73 regular-season wins, but his suspension in Game 5 of the NBA Finals allowed the eventual champion Cleveland Cavaliers to get back into and then win the series they trailed 3-1. Green, who averaged 14.0 points, 9.5 rebounds and 7.4 assists during the regular season, was suspended based on the cumulative number of flagrant fouls on his record during the playoffs.
