Pistons' Isaiah Stewart Arrested For Assault after Pre-Game Attack

In a bizarre pre-game incident in the back hallways at Footprint Center in Phoenix, Detroit Pistons forward Isaiah Stewart was arrested for assault after punching Suns forward Drew Eubanks in the face. 

"Stewart was arrested for assault and issued a citation and released," read a statement from Phoenix Police. "The investigation remains active." The NBA, as well, has launched an official review of the incident.

Shams Charania tells us that this incident "stemmed from their last game against each other," and Wednesday night in the tunnel, the two came chest to chest and exchanged words, when Stewart dropped his bags and punched Eubanks in the mouth. "Eubanks barely flinched, I'm told. He stood there stone cold,” reports Charania. 

Obviously, we haven't heard the last of this, and for Stewart, he already has a history of violent actions, so the NBA might be dealing with him harshly.
