Police in Mobile, Alabama have issued an arrest warrant for DeMarcus Cousins on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge.

Christy West, a former girlfriend of Cousins', is seeking a restraining order against him after she said in court documents and in a police report obtained by TMZ that he threatened her and has previously choked her.

The NBA and Lakers on Tuesday said in statements that they were "investigating the allegations."

Cousins suffered a torn ACL earlier this month.
