Alabama police have issued an arrest warrant for Los Angeles Lakers center DeMarcus Cousins on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge, USA Today Sports reported Thursday.

The Mobile municipal court lists a charge of third-degree harassing communications but provides no specific details about the alleged incident.

The warrant comes two days after TMZ released an audio recording, allegedly of Cousins threatening to harm his ex-girlfriend during an argument about their 7-year-old son.

The NBA and the Lakers both released statements on Tuesday saying that they were investigating the allegations.

Cousins, 29, is a four-time All-Star who signed a free agent contract with the Lakers in July and suffered a torn ACL earlier this month.
