Authorities arrested the Sacramento Kings forward on Monday after a woman called 911 from his home saying she had been assaulted, Placer County sheriff's officials said.
Deputies responded to Artest's five-acre estate in the Sacramento suburb of Loomis about 9:30 a.m., where they found a woman who had suffered injuries, officials said. She declined medical attention.
Deputies arrested Artest on suspicion of domestic violence and using force or violence to prevent his victim from reporting a crime, sheriff's spokeswoman Dena Erwin said.
"He and the female were in the house and separated," Erwin said. "The deputies interviewed them and took Mr. Artest into custody."
Artest was booked into the Placer County Jail and released later on $50,000 bail.
The NBA just needs to kick Artest out for good already. No team can handle him and he just makes the league look worse and worse everytime he gets himself in trouble.
