(CBS/AP) LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles County Sheriff's officials say Darrell Armstrong, an assistant coach for the Dallas Mavericks basketball team, has been arrested on an outstanding warrant from Las Vegas.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the warrant was for non-sufficient funds.

Sgt. James Brown says Armstrong was arrested and booked Tuesday in a case involving non-sufficient funds. No further details about the charges were available.

The assistant coach was released Wednesday on $40,000 bail.

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 that there was an outstanding warrant for the 42-year-old former NBA player.

The driver and another passenger were not detained.

Armstrong played in the NBA until 2008 when he retired and became an assistant coach with the Mavericks.
