Former UCLA Bruin Darren Collison was arrested this afternoon on one count of inflicting corporal injury to a spouse or cohabitant and two misdemeanor bench warrants of driving on a suspended license, according to a report from CBS 13 in Sacramento.

Placer County Sheriff's deputies arrested Collison after they responded to a report from a woman who said she was being assaulted inside a Granite Bay home.

Collison could face up to four years in jail as a result of the charge. Collison was released on $55,000 bail and is due back in court on July 11.

Collison signed a three-year contract with the Sacramento Kings prior to the 2014 season. He is scheduled to make $5.2 million next year and his current contract with the Kings is scheduled to expire at the end of next season.

Collison, who played at UCLA from 2005-2009, was a member of the UCLA Men's basketball team which went to three straight Final Fours under then-head coach Ben Howland.
