Jared Sullinger, former Ohio St. big man who took a basketball in the head from Josh Harrellson in the NCAA tourney, was arrested for domestic violence. Sullinger adds to the rapidly growing line of pro basketball players who have had questionable run ins with the police this summer.
Sullinger was not at the home by the time they arrived, and a warrant was issued for his arrest. He turned himself in about 6 a.m. Tuesday and was booked on charges of assault and battery, malicious destruction of property and witness intimidation.
“I voluntarily reported to the Waltham police this morning to respond to charges against me,” Sullinger said in a statement. “The experience was humbling and embarrassing for me. Yet I know that this situation has brought both sorrow and embarrassment to my girlfriend, my family, the Boston Celtics organization, my teammates, and my fans. To all of you, I apologize from the bottom of my heart.
“My lawyers have advised me not to discuss the case at this time. But I wanted to immediately and publicly apologize to everyone affected by this situation.”(source)
