DeMarcus Cousins sought on arrest warrant for domestic violence charge.
A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Los Angeles Lakers center DeMarcus Cousins on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge.
The phone conversation was recorded by Cousins’ ex-girlfriend and a copy was provided to the Mobile (Alabama) police department.
Mobile police spokesperson Charlette M. Solis told USA TODAY Sports on Thursday that "an arrest warrant has been issued.”
“Yes, a warrant has been signed,” Cousins' ex-girlfriend told USA TODAY Sports in a text message Thursday.
The charge is a Class A misdemeanor, meaning Cousins would face a maximum of a year in jail.
"We are aware of the allegation involving DeMarcus Cousins and, of course, take this claim seriously," the Lakers said in a statement Tuesday. »
