Prior to the thriller between the Dallas Mavericks and LA Clippers last night, Mavs assistant coach Darrell Armstrong had a quick trip to the police station. The LA Times reports: “An assistant coach with the Dallas Mavericks basketball team was arrested in Marina del Rey on an outstanding warrant for non-sufficient funds in Las Vegas, authorities said Wednesday night. Darrell Eugene Armstrong is wanted by the Clark County district attorney’s office in connection with the case, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement. Armstrong was stopped Tuesday morning by a deputy for a traffic violation near Washington Boulevard and Via Marina Way, the department said. He was arrested and booked into the sheriff’s Marina del Rey station. Armstrong was released Wednesday afternoon after posting $40,000 bail, an amount that had been set by authorities in Nevada.”
