An arrest warrant was issued for Hornets’ Miles Bridges on Friday due to violation of a protection order. The warrant had stemmed from a domestic violence case last year. Bridges accompanied by his attorney turned himself in early in the morning in Lincoln County.
Bridges appeared before a district court judge and was released on $1,000 bond.
The 25-year-old Bridges had been in Washington, D.C., on Thursday night as the Hornets played the Wizards in a preseason game, according to a team spokesman. Bridges did not play because he is suspended by the league.
The summons alleged Bridges threatened the mother of his children, who is his ex-girlfriend, during a custody exchange, threw pool table balls at her car — which smashed the windshield and dented her car — and threatened to withhold child support if she told the police. The children were in the car at the time of the incident, which occurred earlier this month, according to the summons. The court hearing is set for November 13.
Miles Bridges was placed under arrest back in June for a physical altercation. In which he was later 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. He then reached a plea deal which would include three years of probation and no jail time. During that probation, he would be required to complete 52 weeks of domestic violence counseling, 52 weeks of parenting classes, complete 100 hours of community service and undergo weekly narcotics testing with marijuana allowed only if there is a valid doctor’s prescription.
When the NBA conducted its own investigation, they decided to suspend Bridged for 30 games. A large amount (20) of those are considered to be under the 2022-23 season. The Hornets brought Bridges back on a $7.9 Million Qualifying Offer.
