Domestic Violence Allegations

The Charlotte Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed the existence of an unserved warrant for Hornets forward Miles Bridges pertaining to the violation of a domestic violence protective order. In addition, there is an unserved criminal summons associated with this case, citing a violation of a domestic protective order, misdemeanor child abuse, and injury to personal property.

This warrant, issued in January, remains unexecuted, while the criminal summons was issued recently. Reports from WSOC-TV in Charlotte indicate that the incident in question occurred at the residence of the mother of Bridges’ two children. It allegedly involved the destruction of her windshield and a violation of the protective order by Bridges, as stated in the corresponding police report.

Efforts to obtain a copy of the police report by The Associated Press were unsuccessful as of Wednesday night.

In response to these developments, the Hornets issued a statement, acknowledging their awareness of the reports and indicating that they are currently in the process of gathering more information.

Efforts to reach Bridges’ attorney for comment were met with no immediate response.

It is worth noting that Miles Bridges, 25 years old, is currently serving three years of probation. This probation resulted from his no contest plea last November to one felony count of injuring a child’s parent, a decision made in exchange for avoiding jail time.

Previously, Bridges had faced three felony charges, including the one he ultimately pled to, as well as two other charges related to child abuse under circumstances likely to cause severe bodily injury or death. These allegations stemmed from an incident in June 2022, where he was accused of assaulting his former girlfriend in the presence of their two children, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney.

Notably, Bridges, who was a restricted free agent at the time of the incident, missed the entire 2022-23 NBA season. The NBA subsequently suspended him for 30 games, although 20 of these were dropped due to the time he had already missed during the previous season. Consequently, Bridges is set to miss the first 10 games of the upcoming regular season and is not allowed to participate in preseason games.

In July, Bridges issued an apology for the pain and embarrassment caused by the domestic violence investigation. He agreed to a one-year, $7.9 million contract with the Hornets, signaling his return for the upcoming season. He also pledged to work on rebuilding relationships with teammates and becoming more active in the Charlotte community.
