Cleveland Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith spoke to police in New York City on Friday about allegations that he threw a fan’s cell phone into a construction site last month, officials say.

Smith was issued a desk ticket for misdemeanor criminal mischief and will appear in Manhattan Criminal Court later this year, according to an official.

On July 26th, a man told police that Smith grabbed his cell phone and threw it into a construction zone in Manhattan after the man tried to take a picture of Smith.

Smith recently penned a children’s book with his brother titled “HoopSmiths”about his journey to play basketball professionally, with a portion of the proceeds going to the J.R. Smith Youth Foundation.
