Draymond Green was arrested on Sunday for an alleged assault. Details started to trickle out that Green had slapped a taunting fan, who was later rumored to be Michigan State football player Jermaine Edmondson. The incident report came out today, and it confirms that the altercation took place between Green and Edmondson.

According to the police report from the incident, Edmondson bumped into Green on Saturday night at Rick’s, an East Lansing bar. Green then turned around and asked Edmondson, “Do you know who I am?” Edmondson told police that he said he didn’t care who he was. Later that night, someone came up to him and grabbed him by the throat, although Edmondson could not confirm who it was. A witness also reported that she had been grabbed on the throat, but she too couldn’t identify the subject.


The next night, Edmondson was outside of Conrad’s when Green approached him, put his hand on him, and tried to talk to him. Edmondson told Green to get off him, which was when Green slapped him. One police officer said, “the sound of the slap was very loud.” The other responding officer said that he heard “a loud smack noise.” Edmondson said that he didn’t need medical attention and that he did not want to press charges against Green.

Green was taken to an East Lansing police station and breathalyzed. He blew a .10 and had to stay in jail until he sobered up.

Update (2:51 p.m.): Edmondson has reportedly changed his mind and will press charges.
