Miles Bridges was arrested for felony domestic violence after an alleged physical altercation with a woman, according to TMZ.
The Charlotte Hornets star turned himself into police and has since been released on $130,000 bail.
Mychelle Johnson, Miles Bridges’ wife recently released images of her being bruised up head to toe. She also spoke about the alleged incident and how people around him keep trying to silence her voice when it comes to his behavior.
“I hate that it has come to this but I can’t be silent anymore. I’ve allowed someone to destroy my home, abuse me in every way possible and traumatize our kids for life. I have nothing to prove to the world, but I won’t allow anyone who could do something so horrible to have no remorse and paint a picture of something I’m not. I won’t allow the people around him to continue to silence me and continue to lie to protect this person. It’s unethical, it’s immoral, it’s truly SICK. It hurts my heart because I’ve always had hope, and so much love and as scary as this is for me to do it’s time I stand up for myself. I won’t be silent to protect others anymore because I value myself and my kids more than anyones ‘image’.… a fracture nose, wrist, torn eardrum, torn muscles in my neck from being choked until i went to sleep and a severe concussion. I don’t need sympathy, I just don’t want this happening to anyone else, I just want this person to get help, my kids deserve better. That’s all i want. It hurts, everything hurts, this situation hurts, most importantly I’m scared and hurting for my kids who were witness to everything. Please respect my families privacy and stop with the disgusting rumors and allegations.”
Bridges became a restricted free agent on Wednesday and after this alleged incident, he might not play in the NBA again.
