Boston Celtics forward Jared Sullinger was arrested over the weekend following a domestic dispute with his girlfriend.

Boston Celtics forward Jared Sullinger was arrested over the weekend for a domestic dispute with his girlfriend. 

According to the Boston Globe's David Abel and John R. Ellement, Sullinger "repeatedly pinned his girlfriend to a bed and to the floor and snatched her cellphone when she told him she was going to call police during a heated argument inside Sullinger's townhome here on Saturday, authorities alleged today." 

Among the charges Sullinger pleaded not guilty to were assault and battery, intimidation of a witness and destruction of personal property, per Abel and Ellement. 

Tensions escalated in Sullinger's residence early Saturday evening when the couple argued about infidelity. When things reached a boiling point, Sullinger reportedly pushed his girlfriend, says Assistant District Attorney Sarah Ellis. 

The girlfriend, who was identified as Deann Smith, has reportedly been with Sullinger since their college days at Ohio State. Judge Gregory C. Flynn ordered Sullinger to communicate with her only by telephone or in the presence of another person.

He also set bail for the Celtics forward, who turned himself in at 6 a.m. on Tuesday, at $5,000. 

Sullinger released a statement about the incident on Tuesday which reads:

"I voluntarily reported to the Waltham police this morning to respond to charges against me. 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 aplogize 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." 

Sullinger, the 21st pick of the 2012 NBA Draft, averaged six points and 5.9 rebounds last season in 45 games before undergoing surgery for his ailing back.
