Eric Bledsoe played in the NBA just last season, but after this recent news, he might be getting back in the league anytime soon.
According to TMZ, the former NBA star was arrested for domestic violence on Wednesday, which came mere hours after he signed with the CBA’s Shanghai Sharks.
Via the report:
“We’re told cops received a call about a domestic incident around 11:13 PM … with a victim claiming she had been slapped by her boyfriend.
Officers responded to the Lost Hills, Calif. residence … and after an investigation, arrested Bledsoe for misdemeanor domestic violence.
32-year-old Bledsoe was booked at the Lost Hills Sheriff’s station … and has since bonded out.”
A photo was posted to Bledsoe’s girlfriend’s Instagram account shows her with marks on her face, with a caption saying, “NO RELATIONSHIP LIKE THIS IS EVER WORTH STAYING IN.”
The woman added … “Domestic violence is real! This wasn’t the first time but I sat here and stayed so it’s my fault!!”
“ERIC BLEDSOE really is a monster.”
I guess Bledsoe wasn’t lying when he wrote this last month.
Bledsoe had a successful run in the NBA, earning a first-team All-Defense selection in 2019 and a spot on the All-Rookie team in 2010.
The tenured point guard was selected by the Oklahoma City Thunder with the No. 18 pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. He spent time with the Thunder, Phoenix, Milwaukee and Los Angeles (Clippers) across his career.
