Celtics' Jared Sullinger arrested

Boston Celtics forward Jared Sullinger was arrested following a domestic situation over the weekend and is expected in court Tuesday, according to the Waltham Police Department.

Prosecutors said Sullinger has been arrested on domestic violence-related charges and police confirmed Sullinger charges of assault and battery, malicious destruction of property, and witness intimidation. It was not immediately clear who Sullinger's lawyer is.

The incident occurred on Saturday evening, and Sullinger turned himself in on Tuesday morning shortly after 6 a.m., according to police.

The Celtics selected Sullinger with the 21st pick in the 2012 draft. He vaulted into the starting lineup early in his rookie season before a back injury forced him to undergo surgery in early February, ending his season.

Sullinger has spent much of his summer rehabbing in Boston and is projected to be a key contributor on this season's team.
