Jared Sullinger

The Boston Celtics have decided to suspend forward Jared Sullinger for one game for a domestic violence arrest he was involved in on Sept. 3, the team announced Tuesday.

The team’s statement reads: “The Boston Celtics announced today that they have suspended forward Jared Sullinger one game for his role in an incident that occurred on August 31, 2013. The suspension will be served during the team’s game at Toronto on October 30, 2013.

‘Jared’s case was dismissed yesterday in Waltham District Court,’ said Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge. ‘While we are satisfied that this was the correct ruling, we are suspending Jared for one game because he failed to meet the high expectations we have for all Celtics employees.’

The team will have no further comment on this matter.”

Sullinger will miss Bostons’ opener in Toronto on Wednesday night.

The domestic abuse charges were dropped Monday.
