LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles police say NBA free agent Nick Young was arrested in Hollywood during a late-night stop for a routine traffic violation.
Officer Mike Lopez, a department spokesman, said Young was arrested Friday for delaying an investigation, a misdemeanor.
Lopez said Young didn’t obey the officers, became upset and caused a delay.
Young was booked early Saturday and later released. He has a Sept. 19 court date.
The 33-year-old Young played for the champion Golden State Warriors last season. A representative of Young could not be immediately reached for comment. A telephone message was left at the office of the agent who represented him when he signed with the Warriors.
