Police say they were called to reports of a fight at The Takapuna Bar on the North Shore.

A 28-year-old man was arrested and charged with assaulting another man.

Police say the victim was not seriously injured and the 28-year-old has since been granted bail.

The Breakers confirmed Webster's arrest when quizzed by 1 News.

1 News understands yesterday was Webster's 28th birthday.

Webster is averaging 11 points a game this season, and last season was the fourth highest scorer in the ANBL.

Last year he spent time training in pre-season with NBA side the New Orleans Pelicans, but missed out on a full time contract.

He is also a Tall Black.

Police say a 28-year-old will appear in the North Shore District Court on Monday.
