On Wednesday afternoon, rising NBA star Miles Bridges was arrested by Los Angeles Police for felony domestic violence. The 24-year-old Charlotte Hornets forward ended up behind bars on the eve of free agency, where he was expected to command a $100 million+ deal after a breakout season leading his team in scoring. He was released on bond and is set to appear in court July 20.

While the LAPD released no information about the incident that triggered the arrest, the Hornets responded with a statement on Thursday: “The Charlotte Hornets are aware of the situation involving Miles Bridges. We are in the process of gathering additional information. We will have no further comment at this time.”

Late Thursday evening, Mychelle Johnson, Bridges’ wife and the mother of their two children, shed light on the NBA players’ alleged actions, posting a series of photos to Instagram showing the bruising she claims Bridges caused, as well as what appears to be a hospital report with harrowing details: “Adult victim of physical abuse by male partner; Assault by strangulation; Brain concussion; Closed fracture of nasal bone; Contusion of rib; Multiple bruises; Strain of neck muscle.”
