Details Emerge In Draymond Green’s Michigan Arrest
Yesterday we reported that Golden State Warriors
baller nut-cracker, Draymond Green, had been arrested for fighting a man inside of a East Lansing, Michigan restaurant.
Today, we have more details about the circumstances surrounding the fight via the NYPost…
Draymond Green expressed regret for his role in an altercation that led to his arrest early Sunday in Michigan, but the Warriors forward said he believes the matter won’t be an issue for him for much longer.
Green’s first public comments about the incident — in which he reportedly hit current Michigan State cornerback Jermaine Edmondson in the face outside a restaurant in East Lansing, and was charged with misdemeanor assault and battery — came Tuesday in Aspen, Colo.
Green was released on $200 bond and pleaded not guilty to the charges.
“I think when things happen, I think you meet them head-on,” Green said. “My legal team is handling it. It will be resolved really quickly. As a public figure, I just can’t put myself in certain situations. It’s something that I’ll learn from and just move on.”
Sounds good, however…
Edmondson told the cops that his beef with the brash Warriors baller began when the two bumped into each other at the bar (people STILL fighting over this tired azz cliche???).
Then Draymond allegedly uttered this lil’ quip:
“I pay for n—— like you scholarships.”
Yeah, that’s pretty disrespectful. But didn’t necessarily call for a fade. Although, what allegedly happened next absolutely calls for one…
Edmondson then alleged someone with Green choked his girlfriend as she tried to squash the issue.
During an encounter the next day at another restaurant, Edmondson, 22, said he saw Green again, but no words were exchanged until Green made eyes at his girlfriend and smirked. When Edmondson confronted Green about it, Edmondson said Green punched him in the jaw, resulting in pain in his head and neck.
In closing his statement, Edmondson said he “would like to take further action on this situation” and is “willing to cooperate to get this situation taken care of.”
So not only is Draymond talkin’ s#!t, but he’s doing the off-the-court version of kickin’ a man in the nuts by eye-f**king and showing teeth to the man’s girlfriend?!
That said, it sounds like Edmondson kid is willing to take the choked girlfriend, bruised ego, and bruised jaw if Draymond cuts a big enough check. SMH.
