Cleveland Cavaliers guard Daniel Gibson turned himself in to New Orleans police on Monday to face a second-degree battery charge, according to a WDSU news report.

Gibson, 27, surrendered to the New Orleans Police Department's 8th District headquarters in the French Quarter where he was processed and posted bond for his release shortly thereafter.

Details involving Gibson's case were not immediately released, but according to the report, the state law defines second-degree battery as a person who "inflicts serious bodily injury" intentionally on another person.

Gibson, an unrestricted free agent, scored 5.4 points and tallied 1.8 assists and 1.3 rebounds over 20.1 minutes per game in 46 games with the Cavaliers last season.
