Clippers C Reed arrested on battery charge

Current Los Angeles Clippers center Willie Reed was reportedly arrested on misdemeanor battery domestic violence charges over the weekend, according to a Sunday morning report from Miami's NBC 6. Jasmine claimed Willie told her to leave but said she had to leave everything he had purchased for her behind. He also admitted to grabbing both her shirt and her purse. He then grabbed the purse and when his wife fell to the ground he dragged her along until the purse's strap broke.

The wife told police that as she was attempting to leave the apartment with their two children, Reed grabbed her by the hair. He did, however, admit to touching her hair when she got in the elevator.

The incident took place in an area under the control of the militants of the terror group in the restive Darzab district. Officials say up to 40 people killed in ongoing fighting in Mirzawalang village in northern Sar-e-Pul province.

The police report noted Jasmine Reed "had red marks on her left wrist, right bicep, the right side of her chest and her back". She also had some swelling on her foot.

The almost seven-foot tall Reed most recently endured a solid go-round for the Heat this past season while coming off the bench in favor of starting center Hassan Whiteside.

Reed played the 2016-2017 National Basketball Association season with the Miami Heat before signing a one-year contract with the Clippers in unrestricted free agency. He played 71 games for the Heat in 2016-17, averaging 5.3 points and 4.7 rebounds per game. Under terms of the policy, the league can conduct its own investigation into the matter and hand out punishment if deemed necessary before a court of law rules on criminal charges.
