The police report from last week’s incident in Miami involving Heat guard Gerald Green reveals Green punched an unnamed person at his apartment building on Nov. 4.
According to the Miami Herald, the report says that Green showed up at the front desk of his condominium with bloody hands, asked the clerk to call paramedics, and then collapsed after walking into the valet area outside. Green recovered, and after going back inside, he reportedly punched someone who was attempting to keep him from returning upstairs to his apartment. The victim will reportedly not press charges.
The report adds that Green was in handcuffs when the officer arrived, before being driven to the hospital. The report called him “very loud and verbally combative.” He spent about four days in the hospital and was reportedly released Saturday. The Herald reports a member of the Heat organization treated Green for dehydration Nov. 3, the day of a game Green missed with what the team called an illness.
Green, 29, was suspended two games by the Heat for conduct detrimental to the team on Tuesday. The team has not released specifics, Green has missed the past five games and is expected to return to the Heat on Friday.
“I want to apologize to my family, fans and the Heat organization,” Green said in a statement. “I accept the suspension and look forward to rejoining my teammates this weekend.”
