Warrior’s​ ​All-Star,​ ​Draymond​ ​Green,​ ​agreed​ ​to​ ​a​ ​plea​ ​deal​ ​in​ ​his​ ​East​ ​Lansing,​ ​Michigan​ ​assault
case.​ ​The​ ​forward​ ​will​ ​not​ ​face​ ​any​ ​jail​ ​time​ ​as​ ​a​ ​result​ ​of​ ​the​ ​incident.​ ​East​ ​Lansing​ ​law
enforcement​ ​will​ ​also​ ​require​ ​him​ ​to​ ​pay​ ​a​ ​$500​ ​fine.

He​ ​allegedly​ ​slapped​ ​a​ ​man​ ​during​ ​a​ ​confrontation​ ​near​ ​East​ ​Lansing​ ​outside​ ​of​ ​a​ ​bar​ ​this​ ​month.

Michigan​ ​prosecutors​ ​agreed​ ​to​ ​reduce​ ​his​ ​misdemeanor​ ​assault​ ​charge.​ ​Now​ ​the​ ​hot-blooded
forward​ ​will​ ​face​ ​a​ ​noise​ ​violation​ ​charge​ ​instead​ ​of​ ​the​ ​more​ ​serious​ ​accusation.


​ ​David​ ​Meyers,​ ​an​ ​assistant​ ​city​ ​attorney​ ​in​ ​East​ ​Lansing​ ​said​ ​that​ ​Green​ ​would​ ​be​ ​guilty​ ​of​ ​a​ ​civil
infraction.

The​ ​member​ ​of​ ​the​ ​U.S.​ ​Olympic​ ​men’s​ ​basketball​ ​team​ ​will​ ​pay​ ​a​ ​$60​ ​jail​ ​restitution​ ​fee​ ​in
addition​ ​to​ ​the​ ​larger​ ​fine.​ ​He​ ​will​ ​have​ ​to​ ​plead​ ​guilty​ ​or​ ​no​ ​contest​ ​as​ ​a​ ​part​ ​of​ ​this​ ​deal.

Meyers​ ​said​ ​in​ ​a​ ​released​ ​statement:​ ​“The​ ​plea​ ​agree​ ​reached​ ​with​ ​Mr.​ ​Green​ ​is​ ​in​ ​accordance
with​ ​our​ ​normal​ ​plea​ ​bargain​ ​procedures​ ​and​ ​guidelines​ ​for​ ​a​ ​case​ ​with​ ​similar​ ​circumstances,
evidence​ ​and​ ​witness​ ​statements.”

“We​ ​simply​ ​treated​ ​Mr.​ ​Green​ ​no​ ​differently​ ​than​ ​any​ ​other​ ​defendant​ ​that​ ​we​ ​prosecute.”

The​ ​Warriors’​ ​big​ ​man​ ​is​ ​a​ ​former​ ​Michigan​ ​State​ ​all-american​ ​basketball​ ​player.​ ​He​ ​was​ ​arrested
outside​ ​of​ ​an​ ​East​ ​Lansing​ ​bar​ ​on​ ​suspicion​ ​of​ ​slapping​ ​former​ ​MSU​ ​football​ ​player,​ ​Jermaine
Edmondson​ ​on​ ​July​ ​10th.

Edmondson​ ​was​ ​granted​ ​a​ ​transfer​ ​last​ ​week.​ ​The​ ​two​ ​athletes’​ ​beef​ ​stems​ ​back​ ​to​ ​July​ ​8th,
when​ ​the​ ​versatile​ ​big​ ​bumped​ ​into​ ​the​ ​defensive​ ​back​ ​at​ ​Rick’s,​ ​a​ ​popular​ ​bar​ ​in​ ​East​ ​Lansing.

The​ ​smaller​ ​football​ ​player​ ​was​ ​snatched​ ​by​ ​the​ ​throat​ ​by​ ​an​ ​unknown​ ​person​ ​after​ ​some​ ​words
were​ ​exchanged​ ​between​ ​the​ ​two.

Two​ ​days​ ​later,​ ​the​ ​two​ ​ran​ ​into​ ​each​ ​other​ ​again​ ​near​ ​Rick’s.​ ​A​ ​verbal​ ​argument​ ​broke​ ​out​ ​and
Green​ ​struck​ ​the​ ​younger​ ​man​ ​in​ ​the​ ​face​ ​with​ ​his​ ​right​ ​hand,​ ​according​ ​to​ ​the​ ​police​ ​report.

The​ ​Warriors’​ ​forward​ ​remains​ ​on​ ​thin​ ​ice​ ​in​ ​Michigan.​ ​He​ ​will​ ​have​ ​to​ ​abide​ ​by​ ​the​ ​conditions​ ​of
the​ ​plea​ ​agreement​ ​for​ ​no​ ​further​ ​action​ ​will​ ​be​ ​taken.
