BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Celtics have suspended forward Jared Sullinger for one game, the team announced on Tuesday.

Sullinger was charged with assault and battery, destruction of property and witness intimidation in September after an altercation with his girlfriend on August 31 in Waltham, but the case was dismissed on Monday.

Still, the Celtics feel Sullinger deserves the suspension for failing to meet the high standards of the team.

“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,” Celtics president Danny Ainge said in a realease.
