EAST LANSING (KRON) — Golden State Warriors’ star Draymond Green is facing jail time and a fine after getting into a fight early Sunday morning in Michigan.

Green was arrested for assaulting another man at the corner of Grand River and Abbot in downtown East Lansing around 2:30 a.m., according to an East Lansing Police Department officer.

There were no injuries, police say, and Green was released on a $200 bond.

Team officials issued a statement Monday to say they are in the process of gathering details about the incident.

“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.”

Police say Green was also tested to determine his blood-alcohol level, but they did not release the results of that test or confirm whether he had any alcohol in his system.

The test is standard, say police, to determine how long someone may need to be held in jail.

Police did not immediately know how long Green remained in jail that night.

Green, a 4-year veteran, is coming off a stellar season averaging 14 points per game and helping his team to an NBA record 73 regular season victories.

The All Star power forward was embroiled in post season controversy for his physical play which led to a critical NBA Finals Game 5 suspension following an altercation with Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James. The Warriors lost Game 5 without Green and the team lost the series after leading the Cavs 3-1.

Green is scheduled for arraignment July 20, and is facing a maximum of 93 days in jail and a $500 fine.
