Ty Lawson of the Denver Nuggets has been arrested and charged with two misdemeanors stemming from domestic violence that may include striking, shoving and property damage, according to court records.
The ex-Tar Heel appeared in court on Monday and was arraigned on all charges, per reports. Lawson was released after posting a $1,000 bond, according to court records.
Rumors indicate Lawson may have had an altercation with reality star Ashley Nicole, who is said to be dating the 25-year-old point guard.
Lawson averaged a career-best 16.7 points and 6.9 assists in 73 games for the Nuggets last season. Lawson is arguably the best player on the Denver roster following the departure of Andre Iguodala.
