A felony domestic violence complaint led to the arrest of NBA player Miles Bridges in Los Angeles on Wednesday. The 24-year-old forward, a member of the Charlotte Hornets of the NBA, turned himself in to a local jail in connection with an alleged violent confrontation that happened the day before. According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the 24-year-old NBA player was detained on June 29 and eventually released on a USD 130,000 bail.
Bridges apparently got into a physical altercation with a lady after arguing with her. After they got on the scene, according to sources in law enforcement, the woman required medical assistance. First and foremost, the claimed victim is said to be healthy and didn’t suffer any significant injuries.

Miles Bridges, who spent four seasons with the Charlotte Hornets, would have become high in demand at the NBA free agency. He averaged 13.4 points and 5.6 rebounds per game at Michigan State University and was selected with the twelfth overall selection in the 2018 NBA Draft. Last season, he started all 80 of his games and saw action for 35.5 minutes per night. Miles had his finest season to date in 2021–22, averaging 20.2 points, 7 rebounds, and 3.8 assists per contest. Bridges, 24, averaged career-highs in multiple categories during his breakout fourth season, including points, rebounds, and assists, and was predicted to receive one of the highest free-agent contracts.
Although it is unknown whether Miles Bridges’ existing legal situation will have an influence on his forthcoming contract situation, it is evident that the claims and charges are very severe, and the timing could not have been worse. Teams who may have been considering making a sizable offer sheet may change their minds in light of his reported actions. Sources verified that Bridges’ side turned down a four-year, $60 million contract offer last season. This summer, it was anticipated that he will command a maximum salary that may total five years and $173 million. According to league sources, the Hornets were willing to match any offer sheet for Bridges.
Miles Bridges was ejected from a game earlier in the year after receiving two technical fouls in the Hawks’ defeat against the Hornets. He struck a fan when he tossed his mouthpiece into the crowd and was later fined $50,000. “That’s out of character for me,” he had then apologised. Miles Bridges is a young NBA player in addition to having a developing rap career. He made his debut in 2020 with the well-received album “Up the Score,” which was followed by another album, “Halftime,” in 2021.
Domestic abuse with aggravating circumstances is a felony in California. Felons also carry additional punishments including restitution and higher fines in which restitution is the sum of money the offender is required to provide the victim. Therefore this could, in fact, be a focal point in which Bridges’ NBA career might prevail or not.
