Kings point guard Darren Collison was arrested by Placer County Sheriff's Department Monday afternoon. 

Deputies were called to a home in Granite Bay early Monday morning by a female who reported that she was being assaulted. 

Details from the Placer County Sheriff's Office Facebook page: "Deputies found that the woman had visible injuries and they arrested Collison on a charge of domestic violence. He was booked at the Placer County Jail in Auburn. He was additionally booked for two misdemeanor warrants, totaling $7,500, for driving on a suspended license. The name of the female victim will not be released as she’s a victim of domestic violence."

The Kings released the following statement: "We've been made aware of the situation. The Sacramento Kings condemn violence of any kind. We are gathering additional information and once all facts are known we will take appropriate steps."

Collison, 28, averaged 14 points, 4.3 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 30 minutes per game last year.

The seven-year NBA veteran is due $5.2 million from the Kings next year in the final season of his three-year, $15 million contract with Sacramento.
