Sgt. James Brown says Darrell Armstrong was arrested and booked Tuesday in a case involving non-sufficient funds. Details about the case weren't immediately available.
Armstrong's bail was set at US$40,000, and someone posted it Wednesday morning.
Sheriff's officials say Armstrong was a passenger in a vehicle that was stopped for a traffic violation in Marina Del Rey on Tuesday. A deputy determined there was an outstanding warrant for the 43-year-old.
The driver and another passenger were not detained.
The Mavericks declined to comment.
