Jared Sullinger arrested after alleged domestic assault, according to report

USA TODAY Sports

The Boston Celtics big man turned himself in Tuesday morning following a weekend incident.

Jared Sullinger turned himself into police early Tuesday morning, according to Nikoletta Banushi of MyFox Boston. Sullinger was arrested after reportedly being involved in a domestic situation with his girlfriend over the weekend.

The Boston Celtics big man is reportedly being charged with assault and battery, malicious destruction of property and witness intimidation. He's expected to appear in Waltham District Court on Tuesday to be formally charged.

The 21-year-old fell in last year's NBA Draft because of reported back problems, but ended up offering good on-court production as the 21st pick. Sullinger averaged a solid 6 points and 5.9 rebounds in less than 20 minutes of action during his rookie year.

He was expected to take on a bigger role for the Celtics this season after the trade of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry to the Brooklyn Nets, but that's up in the air after the results of this situation.
