Boston Celtics forward Jared Sullinger has begun seeing a counselor as he and his long-time girlfriend try to move on from a recent domestic violence incident. Sullinger, 21, was arraigned September 3 after being charged with assault and battery, destruction of property, and intimidation of a witness after a dispute involving Sullinger and his girlfriend, Deann Smith, at their Waltham home on August 31. During the arraignment, Middlesex Assistant District Attorney Sarah W. Ellis asked that Sullinger undergo a mental health evaluation. District Court Judge Gregory C. Flynn refused the request, adding that it was too soon in the criminal justice process for such an examination to be necessary. CSNNE.com

Sullinger was released on $5,000 cash bail, but was also ordered to stay away from the apartment he and Smith shared and could only see her if a third party was present. However, they are allowed to communicate by phone. Both Sullinger and Smith -- who, according to court documents, has since moved back to Ohio with her parents -- filed paperwork last week with the Waltham District Court indicating their desire to have the court's ruling on September 3 modified. Sullinger's attorney, Charles W. Rankin, said his client "has begun seeing a counselor" as part of an effort to improve his relationship with Smith. CSNNE.com
