Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green is being sued for alleged assault and battery by an unnamed man and woman, according to Stephanie Wash and Sabina Ghebremedhin of ABC News. 

According to the press release, the man and woman will speak for the first time Tuesday alongside their attorney, Lisa Bloom. The pair is alleging "physical assault, bullying and misleading statements made by Mr. Green that they claim have severely impacted their lives."

Additional details about the alleged assault have not been released.

Green has had off-court issues in the past. He was arrested on a misdemeanor assault charge in July 2016 after he was accused of hitting Jermaine Edmondson—a former Michigan State football player—in the face, per John Niyo of the Detroit News.

Those charges were ultimately dropped after Green paid a $560 fine for a noise violation as a part of a plea agreement.
