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.

Who Will Win an NBA Title First: Lakers or Celtics?

Aug 28 2014 10:36am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

With 33 championships between them, the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics are without a doubt the cream of the NBA crop. But after decades of consistent dominance, both franchises have fallen on hard times. How hard, you ask? Last season saw the Lakers and Celtics miss the playoffs in the same year for just the second time ever. With both teams on the rebuilding path, that got us wondering: Which of the two has the bes ...

Rebuilding the Boston Celtics' Ideal Roster Around Rajon Rondo

Aug 26 2014 7:30pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Rajon Rondo's future with the Boston Celtics is masked in uncertainty. But what if it wasn't? What if the Celtics knew his impending free agency wasn't an issue? That they would want him back and he would want to come back? That he would be their primary cornerstone for the next half-decade or more? Well, like most teams tend to do, they would presumably tailor the roster to meet the needs of their only star. That's how rebuilds ...

Even though he just finished his junior season, Luke Kennard can’t drive through his hometown of Franklin, OH—a small town of just 12,000 people—without passing at least one sign proudly proclaiming him as a native son. Kennard, who averaged 40 points per game as a junior—with a season high of 59—doesn’t need to accomplish anything more to elevate his reputation among locals. Ohio’s Mr. Basketball last season, he a ...
