LOS ANGELES (AFP) – NBA free agent guard Nick Young, who helped the Golden State Warriors win last season’s title, was arrested at a Hollywood traf­fic stop Friday night, according to multiple reports Saturday.

Young, a 33-year-old American swingman, was apprehended on obstruction of justice charges for refusing to cooperate with po­lice, according to the Los Angeles Times, TMZ, ESPN and multiple Los Angeles television reports.

Young, whose car was im­pounded, is scheduled to appear in Los Angeles municipal court on September 19.
