Lakers center DeMarcus Cousins faces a domestic-violence misdemeanor charge in Mobile, Ala. He allegedly threatened to kill and, in a previous incident, allegedly choked his ex-girlfriend. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.

He also recently tore his ACL.


We’re told Cousins wants to cooperate with law enforcement but the issue is that he just underwent surgery to repair the torn ACL in his left knee on Wednesday and he’s not cleared to fly yet.
We’re told Cousins plans on reaching out to law enforcement to come up with a reasonable solution so he doesn’t get in trouble.

Flying after surgery can be dangerous. Cousins got married Saturday in Atlanta, which is about a five-hour drive from Mobile.
