Brooklyn Nets Basketball Player Rodions Kurucs was arrested and released from jail without bail on Tuesday.
He was charged with a misdemeanor assault charge.
“After learning of the allegations against Rodions Kurucs, we notified and are assisting the League Office as they begin the process of gathering more information,” the Nets confirmed in a statement. “The Nets organization takes allegations of this nature with extreme seriousness.
