Nick Young is currently being investigated for robbery and allegedly punching a man in his testicles in Los Angeles, TMZ reported Thursday.

An unnamed individual is said to have phoned the Los Angeles Police Department on Friday, claiming the former Golden State Warriors guard had assaulted him after he tried to take a photo of Young at a local car wash, police sources told the gossip site.

Authorities are said to be investigating the incident, with Young, 33, reportedly being named a suspect.

The alleged victim is said to have recognized the former Lakers star and wanted a photo with him. Young reportedly declined, but the fan went ahead and took a picture of him, which got Young pissed and he attacked him by punching his testicles before taking his phone along with him.

This is the second time in less than 12 months that Young has found himself on the wrong side of the law. In August, he was arrested for refusing to cooperate with police during a late-night traffic stop in Hollywood.

He is currently an NBA free agent following a brief stint with the Denver Nuggets last month.
