November 23, 2009 | 11:18 am

Dragovic Prosecutors released more information on the Nikola Dragovic case this morning, saying the UCLA forward allegedly got into a scuffle outside the Henry Fonda Theater after an Oct. 24 concert, leaving his alleged victim with multiple injuries.

According to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office, Dragovic allegedly charged the victim and pushed him into a glass display case, which shattered. The alleged victim suffered cuts to his leg and foot.

After several weeks of investigation, Dragovic and a friend, Aleksandar Stanisic, were arrested on Friday.

Dragovic was charged with felony assault and, according to the district attorney, was released on $60,000 bail. His arraignment is set for Dec. 21.

In the meantime, he remains suspended from the team.

[UPDATE 12:19 p.m.: An earlier version of this post misidentified the site of the scuffle as the Henry Ford Theater.]
