Police said the incident involved a member of the Milwaukee Bucks but would not specify which player.

Multiple news outlets reported Adams, 24, was the player involved. Police said he was arrested, cited for disorderly conduct and released.

Police declined to provide any additional details about the circumstances of the incident. 

WISN-TV (Channel 12) reported that Adams was involved in an "altercation with an Uber driver." A police spokesman would not confirm the report.

The Bucks issued the following statement:

"We are aware of the situation involving Jaylen Adams, and are in the process of gathering more information. We have spoken with Jaylen and will continue to have open communication with him."

Before Friday night's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Bucks placed Adams in the health and safety protocol, rendering him ineligible to play. 

Adams has played in seven games this season.
