Early Sunday morning, Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green was arrested for assault in East Lansing, Michigan, and according to sources close to the situation, the 26-year-old had 10 days to return and be arraigned on the charge. Now the official police report has been released, and he had to spend a little time behind bars.

Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green struck a Michigan State football player in the jaw during a weekend confrontation near campus, tried to apologize and then had to sit in jail for a while until he could sober up, according to a police report released Wednesday.

Senior cornerback Jermaine Edmondson — who the school announced Wednesday night has received his release to transfer — claimed he was punched by Green early Sunday outside a restaurant in East Lansing, though officers patrolling the area said they saw or heard a loud, open-handed “slap.”

Edmondson said it was his second confrontation with Green, a former Michigan State player, in two nights. He told police that he and his girlfriend were choked Friday night by men who were with Green at Rick’s, a bar near campus.

He said he spotted Green the next night and tried to talk to him, according to the police report released to media outlets.

“I walk over and I tell Draymond that last night wasn’t cool,” Edmondson, who is from Canton, Ohio, said in an email to police. “As he responded to me he began to poke me on my shoulder, and I tell him that he doesn’t need to put his hands on me, we can just talk. As I started to talk again, boom, I’m punched in my jaw.”

He said he had a headache and pain in his neck and jaw.

Green was arrested and taken to the East Lansing jail where he had a blood-alcohol level of 0.10, police said. He was released when sober.

Green said “he was sorry for slapping the subject and wanted to speak with him to make things right,” Officer Jeff Horn wrote.

On Wednesday night, Michigan State said in a release that Edmondson was given his release and has decided to play his final college season elsewhere. The announcement from the athletic department included no mention of the alleged altercation between Edmondson and Green.

“In discussions with Jermaine Edmondson following spring practice and in the weeks after that, it became clear that Jermaine wanted to play a larger role on the team,” coach Mark Dantonio said in a statement. “After consulting with him in the summer, he felt it was in his best interest to finish his playing career elsewhere.”

Edmondson had 24 tackles last season. He was listed as a third-stringer on Michigan State’s spring depth chart.

If convicted of misdemeanor assault and battery, Green could face 93 days in jail, a $500 fine or both.

“My legal team is handling it. It will be resolved really quickly,” Green said Tuesday in Aspen, Colorado. “As a public figure, I just can’t put myself in certain situations. It’s something that I’ll learn from and move on.”
