Lost Hills Police in California responded to the call at 11:13 p.m. Wednesday. 

The 32-year-old was booked at the Lost Hills Sheriff’s station and eventually released on bond.

The Clippers traded Bledsoe to the Portland Trail Blazers in February, but, due to an Achilles injury, he never played a game with them. He didn’t land on an NBA roster after that. 

Bledsoe’s career began with the Clippers. He played his first three seasons with them after being the 18th overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft.
