Los Angeles County District Attorney on Tuesday filed felony domestic violence charges against Charlotte Hornets forward Miles Bridges, officials stated.
“Domestic violence creates physical, mental and emotional trauma that has a lasting impact on survivors,” District Attorney George Gascón said. “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.”
Bridges, 24, of Charlotte, North Carolina, faces 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.
Also this includes an allegation of causing great bodily injury on the domestic violence victim.
CNN reported that Mychelle Johnson, wife of Miles Bridges, posted a series of photographs showing what appear to be injuries to her face and body on Instagram and a hospital discharge document, two days after her husband was arrested and charged with a felony in Los Angeles.
The alleged assault on the defendant’s girlfriend happened in front of their two children on or about June 27 and 28, according to the criminal complaint.
The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department, West Los Angeles Branch.
