Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson was charged with physical harassment and criminal mischief in connection with an arrest on Saturday in Arapahoe County, Colorado, the Denver Post reported.
Lawson appeared in court on Monday to be arraigned on the charges. He is free on $1,000 bond. The incident allegedly involved domestic violence.
KMGH, the ABC television affiliate in Denver, reported Lawson was arrested by sheriff's deputies on investigation of harassment that includes either striking, shoving or kicking as well as property damage, according to court records.
Both charges are misdemeanors, and the incident requires a mandatory restraining order.
"We are fully aware of an incident involving Ty Lawson over the weekend. Per team policy and out of respect for the legal process, we will have no further comment at this time," Nuggets General Manager & Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Tim Connelly said in a statement.
Lawson, 25, averaged 16.7 points and 6.9 assists in 34.4 minutes per game this past season.
He signed a four-year, 48 million contract extension at the start of last season.
