Cleveland Cavaliers guard JR Smith has reportedly turned himself in to police in New York for a July incident involving a cell phone. 

Per TMZ Sports, Smith was charged with misdemeanor criminal mischief for allegedly throwing a cell phone he stole from a fan near The Park in Chelsea. 

TMZ previously reported Smith was being investigated for a July 29 incident in which he was accused of stealing a cell phone from a fan, who was trying to get a picture with the Cavs star, and throwing it into a construction site. 

“This is nonsense, and we aren’t responding to nonsense,” Smith’s attorney Alex Spiro said. “He was issued a ticket.” 

Smith will appear in court at an unspecified date to resolve the situation.
