Oklahoma City Thunder guard DeAndre Liggins has been jailed on domestic abuse complaints, according to Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office records.

He was taken to the Oklahoma County jail. He is being held on complaints of domestic assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and domestic abuse in the presence of a minor, a jail official said.

Oklahoma City police were called at about 4:40 p.m. to the 2300 block of NW 180th near North Pennsylvania Avenue. An official police incident report is not yet available, Lt. Arthur Gregory said. 

"From what I understand it was a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship," Gregory said. "And I don't know who the child was, if it was theirs, her's or his."

Liggins averaged 1.5 points and 1.4 rebounds in 39 games with the Thunder last season, his first in OKC. He is on a non-guaranteed contract for the upcoming season. Training camp begins in late September.

"We are aware of the situation and take this matter seriously," Sam Presti said in an official statement from the team. "We are in the process of gathering more information and have no further comment at this time."
