Mavericks Assistant Coach Arrested In California
LOS ANGELES (AP) – Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials say an assistant coach for the Dallas Mavericks basketball team has been arrested on an outstanding warrant from Las Vegas.
Sgt. James Brown says Darrell Armstrong was arrested and booked Tuesday in a case involving non-sufficient funds. Details about the case weren’t immediately available.
Armstrong’s bail was set at $40,000, and someone posted it Wednesday morning.
Sheriff’s officials say Armstrong was a passenger in a vehicle that was stopped for a traffic violation in Marina Del Rey on Tuesday. A deputy determined there was an outstanding warrant for the 43-year-old.
The driver and another passenger were not detained.
The Mavericks declined comment on the arrest.
