Draymond Green has had a hectic week. The Golden State Warriors star was arrested in his home state of Michigan after an altercation with an MSU alumnus; Spartans football cornerback Jermaine Edmondson.
The 22-year-old college athlete stated to police that Draymond punched him, in front of his girlfriend, at Conrad's Grill in East Lansing having been choked by a member of Green's entourage the night prior.
The power forward was released on $200 bail and his arraignment is scheduled for July 20 after being arrested for "simple assault".

But it appears we have not heard the end of this saga. While there was no mention of the incident in their statement, it has been confirmed by the college that the student has been granted a transfer for the final year of his career.
"In discussions with Jermaine Edmondson following spring practice and in the weeks thereafter, it became clear that Jermaine wanted to play a larger role on the team," a statement from MSU head coach Mark Dantonio read.
"After consulting with him in the summer, he felt it was in his best interest to finish his playing career elsewhere. We have granted his immediate release to transfer to another institution to have that opportunity."
Green is a legend at Michigan State and is one of the most successful products to come through any of their programmes. He has established himself as one of the best forwards in the NBA right now and collected a plethora of awards during his college years.
Having joined in 2008, he was NABC National Player of the Year in 2012, a Consensus first-team All-American in the same year and Big Ten Player of the Year - to name just a few.
Green is still set to represent the United States of America at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
