Brooklyn Nets forward Jarrett Allen was arrested and charged with one count of assault with a deadly weapon after police say he attacked another man with a knife on Wednesday, according to the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office.
Allen, 22, of Brooklyn, was charged with a misdemeanor assault with intent to kill, a third-degree felony.
He is scheduled to appear in court at a later date.
Allen’s team issued a statement to ESPN.com saying that he “has been released from custody and has been released on bond pending the outcome of the investigation.”
A source familiar with the investigation told ESPN that Allen is not a member of the team.
He has been suspended from all team activities.
Allen was a sixth-round draft pick by the Nets in 2014.
