(CBS/AP) NEW ORLEANS - Los Angeles Lakers player Derrick Caracter was arrested in New Orleans after allegedly shoving a pregnant cashier at a IHOP.

Police say the 22-year-old forward was arrested early Sunday and booked into jail on charges of battery, public drunkenness and resisting arrest.

They say Caracter allegedly grabbed and shoved the cashier at the restaurant after he was refused service and became belligerent.

The woman wasn't injured.

Police say Caracter was freed later Sunday morning on $1,000 bond.
