The wife of Charlotte Hornets player Miles Bridges broke her silence on Thursday night when she took to her Instagram and shared the harrowing aftermath of an alleged domestic violence attack that landed the basketball player in jail.
“I hate that it has come to this but I can’t be silent anymore,” Mychelle Johnson, 24, posted to Instagram. “I’ve allowed someone to destroy my home, abuse me in every way possible and traumatize our kids for life.”
She went on to describe the abuse while posting a series of photos showing scratches on her face, a fractured nose, her bloody ear, bruises along her arm, back and legs.
Johnson also claiemd in her post she was allegedly choked until she fell asleep.
“I don’t need sympathy, I just don’t want this happening to anyone else,” Johnson said. “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.”
Bridges was charged with felony domestic violence when he turned himself in to Los Angeles police on Wednesday, according to TMZ. The 24-year-old was reportedly released on $130,000 bail shortly after his arrest.
Because of his alleged actions, many NBA fans would love to not only see him in prison, but kicked out of the league.
Bridges, who attended Michigan State University, appeared in 80 games last season and led the Hornets with 20.2 points per game.
Charlotte offered Bridges a qualifying offer on Wednesday, making him a restricted free agent.
