But Edmondson's statement to police was quite different. Green then slapped Edmondson across the face, Edmondson told police. Edmondson said he bumped into Green last Friday and looked for an apology from Green, which Green shot down.

"The incident occurred amid a crowd "that began to get very loud as people were arguing back and forth" outside Conrad's".

She said a third police officer, Chad Pride, came to help.

Green was charged on Monday with misdemeanor assault or assault and battery. The TNT analyst and Hall of Famer thinks that Green was justified to confront a heckling fan. He told police that he walked up to Green to talk about the previous night's encounter. In his written statement, Edmondson said Green responded: "I pay for n--as like you scholarships". He claimed he heard Williams yelling so he ran "over to her to see what was going on and she said she was choked by another one of the guys who were with Draymond for trying to calm the situation". Given that Green reportedly admitted to slapping Edmondson, we have no choice but to remove him from the watering hole, as Rule 12A(V)(l)(1) stipulates that a player, coach, or trainer "must be ejected for ... a punching foul". "As I started to talk again, boom, I'm punched in the jaw, in front of all my friends and peers". Another man with Green also choked Edmondson's girlfriend, he wrote. Green was booked and lodged in East Lansing Police Department jail and was released after posting bail ($200).

Green spoke to the public on Tuesday for the first time since the arrest and indicated that he expects the situation to be resolved quickly.

"I think when things happen, I think you meet them head on", Green told the San Jose Mercury News. "So it's something I've learned from, and just move on".

"Draymond is completely innocent...completely should capitalized", mentioned Green's lawyer James Heos. "As the authorities continue investigating and interviewing all witnesses, we will have no further public comment until that process is completed".
