Miles Bridges went from an NBA player that should’ve received a max contract this offseason, to a player who might be in prison for what he allegedly did to his wife.
On Tuesday, Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón announced Bridges would be charged with one felony count of injuring a child’s parent and two felony counts of child abuse under circumstances or conditions likely to cause great bodily injury or death.
“Domestic violence creates physical, mental and emotional trauma that has a lasting impact on survivors,” Gascón said in a press release. “Children who witness family violence are especially vulnerable and the impact on them is immeasurable. Mr. Bridges will be held accountable for his actions and our Bureau of Victim Services will support the survivors through this difficult process.”
According to the LA District Attorney’s office, Miles Bridges faces up to 11 years, 8 months in prison if convicted of the current domestic violence charges against him.
This announcement comes a little more than two weeks after his wife Mychelle Johnson shared disturbing images following Bridges’ arrest.
Bridges averaged 20.2 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 3.8 assists in 80 games this past season.
