Out on Bail, Arrested UCLA basketball player Dragovic posts bail, from Bail Bondsman in Lakewood | Long Beach | Van Nuys | Hollywood | Los Angeles

UCLA basketball player Nikola Dragovic, arrested on a felony assault charge stemming from a fight at a concert last month, was out on $30,000 bail Saturday, police said.

The 6 foot-9 inch, 21-year-old forward born in Serbia-Montenegro surrendered to campus police, then Los Angeles police detectives, about 1 p.m. Friday after being informed by prosecutors that he was being charged, according to law enforcement officials.

The booking and release process began about 11:00 a.m. Friday. Dragovic posted bail of $30,000 and was released later that night, said Los Angeles
police Sgt. Enrique Mendoza of the Hollywood Station.




It was unclear what led to the charge, other than it happened at a concert in Hollywood last month. An arrest warrant was issued Thursday, according to the District Attorney's Office.

Dragovic was absent from his team's 75-64 win Friday over Cal State Bakersfield. His status for upcoming games will be determined as more information becomes available, said Marc Dellins, a spokesman for UCLA sports.

The Bruins play Pepperdine at Pauley Pavilion on Monday.

"This is an unfortunate situation for Nikola,'' coach Ben Howland said. "Our staff and players will do what we can to help him during this time. He made us aware of the incident when it occurred, but until this morning, we did not know charges would be filed.''

Dragovic had 14 rebounds in a 68-65 double-overtime loss to Cal State Fullerton Monday.

Dragovic was arrested Nov. 7, 2008 on suspicion of battery after a fight with a former live-in girlfriend in the Palms area, but no charges were filed after prosecutors from the City Attorney's Office questioned each separately, the Los Angeles Times reported in December.
