On Wednesday, Jaylen Brown, McDonald’s All-American forward, was arrested and charged with two misdemeanor traffic violations, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He was later released on a $1,300 bond.

Brown, a 6’7”, 215-pound small forward, was ranked as the No. 1 basketball recruit nationwide by and featured as No. 2 in the ESPN 100.

He was charged for driving under a suspended license and for a stop sign violation. The incident occurred along Roswell Road in Cobb County at 10:55am.

According to USA Today High School Sports, Wheeler Coach Doug Lipscomb said that Brown would still play at the McDonald’s All American Game next Wednesday and the DICK’S Sporting Goods High School Nationals beginning on Thursday.

“All he did was get a ticket for a stop-sign violation. He didn’t know he was driving on a suspended license. He was in an accident, they mailed the citation to his house, but his family had moved and didn’t receive the notice, so his license was suspended. It wasn’t that big a deal.”

Douglas Freeland, McDonald’s All American Games director, said in a statement, “We are aware of the news surrounding Jaylen Brown. We’re currently looking into the matter.”

Brown is a senior from Wheeler High in Marietta, Ga., and a consensus five-star prospect.

This season, he averaged 28 points and 12 rebounds a game and led Wheeler to the state AAAAAA championship. He was also nominated as a 2015 McDonald’s All-American, as reported by Sporting News.

His achievements also include being honored as the boys’ state player of the year in the Atlanta Tipoff Club’s Naismith Awards Banquet, and being named the state’s Gatorade boys basketball player for the year.
