Former NBAer Ty Lawson was arrested in Madrid, Spain for two altercations according to Spanish news agency EFE.

EFE reports, citing police sources, that Lawson injured a customer in an Italian restaurant by throwing a glass at him Saturday (6/2). The victim, that required stitches, informed the police that the perpetrator was a “well-known basketball player” and police issued a “search and arrest” order.

Later that day, Lawson was arrested when he was involved in an altercation in central Ibiza street.

Lawson is also reported to cause a commotion in Madrid’s Barajas Airport by having a “violent attitude.” He was on his way to Santo Domingo via transit but Iberia employees didn’t allow him to board the plane and authorities had to escort him to take another flight.

Throughout his career, Lawson played in 587 NBA games from 2009 to 2017 with the Denver Nuggets, Houston Rockets, Indiana Pacers and Sacramento Kings.
