GRANITE BAY, Calif. — Sacramento Kings point guard Darren Collison was arrested on a charge of domestic violence after deputies responded to a report of a woman being assaulted inside a California home, authorities said Tuesday.
The Placer County Sheriff’s Office said Collison, 28, was arrested Monday after deputies found the woman visibly injured.
Collison was booked at the Placer County jail in Auburn, California, and freed hours after his arrest on $55,000 bail, the office said.
He also was booked on two misdemeanor bench warrants for driving on a suspended license.
Officials didn’t release the name of the woman or any other details.
The Sacramento Kings said in a brief statement that the team is aware of the arrest and gathering more information. The team says that once it has all the facts it “will take appropriate steps.”
Collison just finished his second season with the Kings. He averaged 14.0 points and 4.3 assists per game this season. He has one year remaining on his contract with Sacramento.
Collison previously played for New Orleans, Indiana, Dallas and the Los Angeles Clippers during his seven-year NBA career.
