Reed's arrest comes two weeks after he signed a new deal with the Los Angeles Clippers that is worth a reported $1.5million.

Reed, 27, was booked by police for misdemeanor battery, according to Miami-Dade jail records.

Reed, who spent last season plying his trade for the Miami Heat, was arrested early Sunday around 3:06 a.m.in the southern Florida city.

The NBA suspended then-Sacramento Kings point guard Darren Collison for seven games after he pled guilty to misdemeanor domestic battery last season.

There are no further details of the arrest and alleged crime at the moment.

On July 18, he signed his one-year contract with the Clippers.

Since going undrafted in the 2011 National Basketball Association draft, Reed has bounced around several teams including the Sacramento Kings and the Brooklyn Nets. Reed, who backed up Hassan Whiteside at center during the 2016 season, turned down his 2017-2018 player option with the Heat. He also has played with the Brooklyn Nets.

In the new collective bargaining agreement, which took effect on July 1, the National Basketball Association implemented a new domestic violence policy that allows the league to conduct its own investigation and levy penalties on players even before a court ruling on criminal charges.
