Miles Bridges was arrested on a felony domestic violence charge Wednesday, authorities said.
The Charlotte Hornets forward, who had a breakout campaign during the past NBA season, was arrested on suspicion of felony domestic violence, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
Bridges was arrested, booked, and released after posting $130,000 bail.
Social media went nuts over this development as it happened mere hours before the start of free agency where he is looking for a max contract.
Since then, social media has went through his Twitter account and found some rather interesting tweets from his past.
The Hornets addressed the arrest in a statement.
“The Charlotte Hornets are aware of the situation involving Miles Bridges,” the team said. “We are in the process of gathering additional information. We will have no further comment at this time.”
Bridges was selected as the 12th pick in the 2018 NBA draft.
Bridges averaged career highs last season with 20.2 points per game, seven rebounds and 3.8 assists.
