Warriors forward Draymond Green has reached a plea deal in his assault case, reports the Detroit Free Press.

Green was arrested earlier this month after he allegedly slapped a then-Michigan State football player at an East Lansing bar. The Warriors star was charged with misdemeanor assault.

As part of his plea deal, Green will pay a $560 fine and is restricted from contact with the victim for one year. Green’s charge will also turn into a civil infraction, meaning his offense will not be considered criminal.

Green, a Michigan native who attended Michigan State from 2008 to ’12, will represent the United States at the Rio Olympics.
