Dallas Mavericks assistant coach Darrell Armstrong was arrested in Los Angeles Tuesday on an outstanding warrant related to a casino debt in Las Vegas, reports the Los Angeles Times.
The Mavericks were in town between taking on the Lakers and Clippers. Armstrong was pulled over for a traffic violation in Marina Del Rey and the warrant came up on the police computer. He was arrested then released Wednesday on $40,000 bail, according to the Times.
