Fleisher details the situation described in the police report:

Fleisher adds that alcohol may have been a factor in the alleged incident that led to Johnson's arrest:

According to MyFoxMemphis.com, the 6'9", 245-pound Johnson and his wife got into an altercation early Saturday morning around 2 a.m. local time. That's when Johnson allegedly struck her in the face and choked her, according to what she told police.

She also alleges that Johnson punched a hole in the bathroom door while she was in there with their child. Johnson has been charged with domestic assault-bodily harm and is scheduled to be in court on Monday, per MyFoxMemphis.com.

A former first-round draft pick of the Chicago Bulls in 2009, Johnson has played for four different NBA teams over the past five seasons, starting 91 regular-season games for his career.
