Post-game Reactions

In a bit of breaking news this morning, Fox25 is reporting that power forward Jared Sullinger was arrested this morning in Waltham, after turning himself after a domestic dispute with his girlfriend. Here is more from the Fox25 report, which has been confirmed by other sources as well:

Police said Sullinger arrived at the police station 6 a.m. Tuesday to turn himself in.

Sullinger is charged with assault and battery, malicious destruction of property and witness intimidation.

According to police, the incident happened early Saturday evening.

Sullinger is due in Waltham District Court Tuesday.

To say this is a pretty major shock would be an understatement in Celtics circles. It’s obviously far too early to speculate what happened here in the early stages of the investigation. We should know far more this afternoon. That’s when Sullinger will be arraigned in district court and we should begin hearing details about the alleged incident.

CelticsHub will be reporting on that arraignment as it develops, so stay tuned to CelticsHub for updates on the developing situation.

    This is definitely disappointing. Sullinger seemed like he would make a mature vocal leader for the team this season alongside Rondo

    Huge disappointment, but I guess it's encouraging that he turned himself in.

    Before we say this is a huge disapointment, lets hear what happened…

  • Ghost of Garden Past

    Celts should follow the Pats/Aaron Hernandez example and cut him immediately.

    • The Cardinal

      Yeah, cause who gives a rats ass about the particulars of the allegation, whether or not someone is jailed without bail, etc… for a high wage, pro athlete, right? When owners, executives and general staff members as well as you and the folks in your work place are immediately fired after being charged with alleged domestic abuse (or hell – even when convicted of domestic abuse), then we can talk.

  • Ghost of Garden Past

    Plenty of organizations would quickly cut ties after something like this. As a professional athlete he's in a unique high profile position as a public figure and children's role model. With the bad press that has been generated already this summer he should have known to keep his head down and stay off that radar. The lawlessness needs to stop. Cut him.

    *cutting him also improves our odds for Wiggins!

    • The Cardinal

      If he's guilty as charged, then the justice system will determine that and deal with him accordingly. If the Boston Celtic's have a policy for ALL employees that addresses this situation, then the Boston Celtics will follow that policy.

      Sadly, while domestic abuse is a serious issue, the only reason it's newsworthy in this instance is because the accused is a celebrity/athlete as opposed to you, your brother, your dad, or that good buddy of yours who didn't really mean it when he downed a few too many and slapped around his no good, lyin' a.. wife/girlfriend/side piece. Just in case you don't get the point, my point is this: express the same outrage when "real" people in your life do something f'cked up and then maybe we can take your bitchin' and moanin' about a "public figure" and "children's role model" seriously.

      Suggesting that someone should be treated more harshly because he is a pro athlete than if he worked on Wall Street or at Walmart is the epitome of hubris.

      Just wondering how this compares to the Kobe Bryant episode in Colorado in your mind, and relative consequences you are suggesting….

      @ Cardinal – well said

  • emg

    all part of danny's machiavellian plan to tank

  • GoCelticsGo

    Cut him, or trade him if someone is willing to overlook this. Who the hell wants to root for a woman-beater? Not me. I can overlook a number of things, but this is not one of them.
