NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- NBA star J.R. Smith stands accused of breaking a fan’s cellphone.

The onetime member of the New York Knicks was in the city last month around 3 a.m., when a 20-year-old man spotted him and started videotaping him.

Police said the Cleveland Cavaliers guard snatched the phone and threw it into a construction zone.

Smith turned himself in on Friday on a misdemeanor criminal mischief charge.
