Pelicans center Jaxson Hayes was reportedly arrested early Wednesday morning after police arrived to a Los Angeles-area home to handle an alleged domestic disturbance.

TMZ:

Sources tell us 6'11", 220-lb. Hayes got combative with cops and a fight broke out ... with the ex-Texas Longhorns star getting tased in the middle of the scuffle.
Hayes is expected to be booked for felony battery on a police officer. Cops are still investigating the initial alleged domestic incident, but both parties have been uncooperative.

Will Guillory of The Athletic:

Initial charges – especially when listing police as the alleged victim – sometimes get downgraded.
