Warriors forward Draymond Green was arrested for assault Sunday in East Lansing, Mich., police confirmed to ESPN.

MLive.com’s Brendan F. Quinn first reported the news.

Green was released on $200 bail, and has 10 days to be arraigned. According to police, the forward was involved in an altercation inside a restaurant around 2:30 a.m. local time. There were no injuries.

Evan Sernoffsky of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Green slapped a fan who was taunting him. 

Green, who was named to the U.S. Olympic team for next month’s Games in Rio, went to college at Michigan State in East Lansing. 

“We are aware of news involving Draymond Green in Michigan over the weekend,” the Warriors said in a statement. “At this point, we are collecting information and will have no further comment until we have a better understanding the situation.”

Green, 26, has played four NBA seasons, all with the Warriors. He was named to his first All-Star team this season after averaging 14.0 points, 9.5 rebounds and 7.4 assists per game. 

The 2016 Olympics would be his first appearance for the national team. The team begins practice in Las Vegas on July 18.
