Last July Warriors player Draymond Green allegedly got into an altercation with former Michigan State Spartans football star Jermaine Edmondson. Edmondson has since filed a lawsuit against the basketball player.
In the lawsuit Edmondson claims he has been receiving threats and “wakes up crying” ever so often. He says:
“I think about what happened with Draymond every day. I still feel his hand on my jaw.”
Marc J. Spears of ESPN’s The Undefeated shared a statement from Green that read:
“This lawsuit relates to an incident that occurred in East Lansing, Michigan over a year ago, for which Draymond paid a noise violation fine. Draymond looks forward to defending himself and clearing up the misinformation put forth today.”
A police officer that was at the scene supposedly heard a “a loud slap sound,” and another officer said he saw a black male “open-handedly slap another black male across the face.”
Officer Jeff Horn, the policeman who arrested Green wrote in his report that Green “[indicated] that he was sorry for slapping the subject and wanted to speak with him to make things right.”
Green was arrested on July 10, 2016 with charges of a misdemeanor assault and battery. A week later he reached a plea deal to lower his charges to just a civil infraction and ended up having to pay $560 in fines and court fees.
