MIAMI (AP) — Miami Heat guard Gerald Green punched a man, then was combative with paramedics and eventually needed to be handcuffed just so rescue personnel could transport him to a trauma center last week, according to police.
The Miami police incident report, released Wednesday, said the man who was punched by Green did not wish to press charges.
The report sheds some light on the circumstances surrounding Green’s mysterious absence from the Heat and subsequent two-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team. Green will serve the final game of that suspension Thursday when Miami plays host to Utah and is expected back on the practice floor on Saturday.
According to the report, Green asked the front desk staff at the building where he was staying to call Miami Fire Rescue around 10:20 a.m. on Nov. 4. Green had blood on his hands, for reasons not made clear in the report.
