PLACER COUNTY -- The Placer County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday that the domestic violence case against Kings guard Darren Collison is now being reviewed by the District Attorney's Office.

Collison was arrested at his Granite Bay home early Monday morning after deputies responded to a call from an unidentified woman who reported being assaulted.

"The deputies determined that there was injury to her body and through subsequent interviews developed probable cause that there was enough to make an arrest," said Lt. Troy Sander with the sheriff's office.

Collison, who signed with the Kings as a free agent in 2014, was arrested on a felony charge of domestic violence as well as a single misdemeanor charge of driving with a suspended license. He posted $55,000 bail Monday and is due back in court on July 11.

A Kings spokesperson told FOX40 on Wednesday they did not believe Collison was in town and a visit to his home went unanswered the same day.

"The case has been forwarded to the District Attorney's office for further review and they'll be responsible for how they go forward from here," said Sander.

The Kings said Tuesday there were aware of the situation and issued a brief statement, reading in part:

“The Sacramento Kings condemn violence of any kind. We are gathering additional information, and once all facts are known we will take appropriate steps.”
