Police have been issued an arrest warrant for Los Angeles Lakers center DeMarcus Cousins on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of the ESPN, “the Mobile municipal court website lists a third-degree harassing communications charge against Cousins, but no other details have been disclosed. A police spokesperson told USA Today Sports that “an arrest warrant has been issued.”

Christy West, a former girlfriend of Cousins, is seeking a restraining order against him after she said in court documents and in a police report obtained by TMZ that he threatened her and has previously choked her.

West, according to TMZ, alleged that Cousins said he would put a “bullet in (her) f—ing head” during an argument over allowing their seven-year-old son to attend Cousins’ wedding to another woman.”
