On Tuesday, NBA player Miles Bridges was charged with multiple counts of domestic violence and child abuse in the assault on his girlfriend last month, prosecutors said.
Bridges, 24, was charged with two counts of child abuse and one count of domestic violence for assaulting his girlfriend in late June, according to a statement from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office. Bridges surrendered to the LAPD last month and is due to appear in court at the airport courthouse on Wednesday.
Prosecutors included the allegation that Bridges, the starting forward for the Charlotte Hornets, inflicted serious bodily harm on his girlfriend. On Tuesday, it was unclear what the child abuse counts were about. Prosecutors said the children were present during the attack.
The District Attorney’s office did not respond to requests for comment or provide a copy of the criminal case file against Bridges.
According to the prosecutor’s office, the attack took place on June 27 and 28. The victim and Bridges are raising two children, prosecutors said in a statement.
It was not immediately clear who Bridges’ defender was. Bridges was last released from custody on $130,000 bail.
