DeMarcus Cousins is sought by police after a warrant for misdemeanor domestic violence charge was issued for his arrest, USA Today reports. The warrant was issued after Cousins’ ex-girlfriend filed a report alleging that the player threatened to kill her and had previously choked her.

A police spokesperson and Cousins’ ex-girlfriend confirmed the issuing of the warrant to USA Today.

Cousins allegedly told his ex-girlfriend Christy West that he would put a” bullet (her) f—ing head” after she declined his request to let their 7-year-old son attend the player’s wedding on August 24. West is seeking a restraining order against Cousins.

A defense attorney told USA Today that a person sought on for misdemeanor domestic violence is subject to arrest in the state of Alabama and that Cousins will likely be advised by his lawyer to turn himself in.
