According to the Denver Post, Lawson was charged with physical harassment and
criminal mischief. Arapahoe county sheriff Grayson Robinson told the paper
Lawson and his girlfriend, Ashley Nicole Pettiford, got into a heated exchange
that resulted into the two breaking each others phones.
Pettiford was also arrested and court records show that a mandatory
restraining order was issued after charges were filed to both parties.

"We are fully aware of an incident involving Ty Lawson over the weekend. Per
team policy and out of respect for the legal process, we will have no further

driving in April 2012.
