Former Michigan State basketball star Draymond Green was arrested for assault on Sunday in East Lansing, Mich.

Green has 10 days to return to East Lansing for his arraignment hearing, which is scheduled for July 20.
Green just concluded his fourth year with the Golden State Warriors. He averaged 14 points, 9.5 rebounds and 1.4 blocks while helping the Warriors win the NBA’s Western Conference. Green was also selected to represent the United States at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil this summer. The Warriors released a statement on the matter on Monday.
“We are aware of the news involving Draymond Green in Michigan over the weekend,” the statement read, according to NBC Bay Area. “At this point, we are collecting information and will have no further comment until we have a better understanding of the situation.”
The former second-round pick is one of three Spartans to score more than 1,000 points and rack up more than 1,000 rebounds during his career.
