Nick Young was arrested on Friday night after an incident with police during a traffic stop in Los Angeles, according to a report from TMZ.

Young, who remains a free agent after winning his first NBA title with the Golden State Warriors in June, was reportedly pulled over for an ordinary traffic violation in Hollywood. Then, according to TMZ:

We’re told the 33-year-old refused to cooperate with the officers on scene, and so he was arrested for obstruction of justice.

 

One witness tells us … cops took Young out of his vehicle and ordered him up against a wall where he was handcuffed and taken into custody.

A witness posted video of Young after the incident to social media:

It’s unclear what exactly occurred between Young and the police officer leading to his reported arrest.

Young, affectionately known as Swaggy P, signed a one-year, $5.2 million deal with the Warriors last offseason. He averaged 7.3 points per game off the bench, and played a marginal role as the Warriors swept the Cavs for a third NBA title in four years.

After reported interest over the summer, he remains unsigned.

This story will be updated when more details on Young’s reported arrest are known.
