The Placer County (California) Sheriff's Office said that Collison was arrested midday on Monday after the woman visibly injured by deputies.

According to Sheriff's Office, the 28-year-old Collison was booked at the Placer County jail in Auburn. He was charged with one count of corporal injury on a spouse and two misdemeanor bench warrants for driving on a suspended license.

The NBA player was later released on $55,000 bail hours after his arrest and is due back in court July 11. Officials didn't release the identity of the woman.

The Sacramento Kings released a statement confirming that the team is aware of the arrest. "The Sacramento Kings condemn violence of any kind,'' the team said. "We are gathering additional information and once all facts are known we will take appropriate steps," it added.

Collison appeared in 74 games for the Kings last season, averaging 14 points and 4.3 assists. He signed a three-year, $16 million deal with the Kings before the 2014-15 season.
