Lakers big man DeMarcus Cousins faces a third-degree domestic violence charge stemming from a threatening Aug. 23rd phone call he allegedly made to the mother of his child, but the warrant on the misdemeanor charge has never been served.
Cousins’ ex-girlfriend, Christy West, contends in the police report the alleged threatening comments were made during an argument over whether their son could attend Cousins’ Atlanta wedding the following day.
After Cousins’ participation in Lakers Media Day last week, TMZ Sports checked in with the Mobile Police Department Tuesday in the player’s hometown of Mobile, Alabama, for an update.
The sports site then reported a police spokesperson “told us officials aren’t hunting down Cousins because he’s only facing a misdemeanor charge,” but noted, “The NBA has reached out to us’ to facilitate an official surrender.”
