NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans police say unrestricted NBA free agent Daniel Gibson has turned himself in to face a second-degree battery charge.

Police spokeswoman Remi Braden says he's accused of breaking another man's jaw with a punch during an argument at a nightclub about 5:15 a.m. on July 8.

Gibson's wife, Keyshia Cole, sang at the Essence Festival on July 6.

Braden says Gibson surrendered Monday with his attorney, Ike Spears. Online court records show he was released on $20,000 bond. Spears wasn't immediately available for comment.

Braden says Gibson's accuser is from St. Rose, about 25 miles from New Orleans.

The nightclub is about three blocks from the National World War II Museum.

Gibson played seven years for the Cavaliers but was out with injuries much of last season.
