A May 30 incident involving Sacrament Kings point guard Darren Collison has led to the Placer County (California) District Attorney filing charges of domestic violence against the guard. A woman had reported being assaulted and had visible injuries when the sheriff's office came to his home in Granite Bay. He was arrested on domestic violence and also booked for two misdemeanors involving a suspended license.

From CSN Bay Area:

The charges are related to a May 30th, 2016 incident where Collision was arrested at his home.

The initial reports were submitted to our office for review by the Placer County Sheriff's Office on June 1st, 2016. Our office additionally requested and received photographs of the victim's injuries in the case and a copy of the 911 call made by the victim on May 30th, 2016. After review of the all the above evidence we have concluded there is sufficient evidence that will allow our office to file and prove this criminal case against Mr. Collison beyond a reasonable doubt.

Collison was arrested by Placer County Sheriff's Department Monday afternoon.

Collison has been with the Kings since signing a three-year, $16 million contract in 2014.
