The jail records show that Caruso paid a $552 fine and was released on $3,000 cash bond.
Caruso joined the Los Angeles Lakers in 2017 after going undrafted out of Texas A&M in College Station. He has played four seasons for the team and will be a free agent. The 6-foot-5 guard is expected to command some decent bucks, reportedly in the $10 million range.
Caruso is a major fan-favorite for the Lakers. The arrest is unlikely to hurt his standing with the fans.
