Kay Felder, who has played for four NBA teams, arrested on suspicion of assault
Kay Felder, who has played for four NBA teams and the Toronto Raptors' G League squad, was arrested on suspicion of assault and making threats Sunday, a police spokesperson confirmed to USA TODAY Sports.
Police in Mississauga, a city outside Toronto where the Raptors' G League team is based, responded to a residence after the department received a report of a disturbance, Mississauga police spokesperson Harinder Sohi told USA TODAY Sports.
Felder has since been released from custody and has a court date Dec. 18, according to Sohi.
Raptors 905 announced Felder's release Monday afternoon in a statement:
"On Monday, Dec. 3, 2018, Raptors 905 guard Kay Felder was charged by police in connection with an allegation of domestic violence.
"Raptors 905 have waived Felder, effective immediately.
"As this matter is before the courts, Raptors 905 will not comment further."
Felder was drafted in the second round in 2016 out of Oakland by the Atlanta Hawks, then traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers that night. Along with the Cavaliers and Raptors, the 23-year-old guard also has played for the Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons.
TMZ, the first outlet to report the incident, identified the alleged victim as female. Sohi, citing department policy, declined to state the gender of the alleged victim.
