A number of personal items were allegedly taken and someone was attacked during the incident, Yarbrough said.
Another department took Hickson into custody, and he was turned over to Coweta County afterward.
Hickson was a standout basketball player at Joseph Wheeler High School in Marietta, Georgia and attended North Carolina State University before being drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the 19th pick in the 2008 NBA Draft.
He would go on to play for the Cavaliers, Sacramento Kings, Portland Trail Blazers, Denver Nuggets and Washington Wizards throughout his eight-year NBA career. He most recently played basketball overseas for the Lebanon Champville SC team in 2018.
