According to TMZ, Charlotte Hornets player Miles Bridges was detained and charged with felony domestic abuse on Wednesday in Los Angeles.
According to the article, Bridges brought himself in to the police on Tuesday after an alleged violent confrontation with a woman.
After the encounter, the woman required medical assistance, but Bridges had already left when law officers arrived, according to TMZ. After paying a $130,000 bail, he was freed.
Bridges, a restricted free agent who declined a four-year, $60 million contract, could earn an average salary of more than $20 million per season.
Retaining their top scorer from the previous season remained a top objective, according to Hornets general manager Mitch Kupchak, who stated this during the team's press conference to welcome coach Steve Clifford on Tuesday.
Kupchak declared, "As a team, we love Miles and we're bringing him back. "He's been terrific for the franchise, and I think his work ethic will only help him get better," said one fan.
