Miles Bridges moves upcourt during the team’s NBA basketball game against the Denver Nuggets, on March 28, 2022, in Charlotte, North Carolina.


Charlotte Hornets forward, Miles Bridges, surrendered to the police on Friday, following an arrest warrant in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. The warrant was issued due to a violation of a protection order in a domestic violence case from the previous year.

Accompanied by his attorney, Bridges turned himself in at the Lincoln County Detention Center. He appeared before a district court judge and was later released on a $1,000 secured bond, as stated in a news release from the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.

The charges against Bridges include violating a protection order, misdemeanor child abuse, and injury to personal property.

It was confirmed by the sheriff’s office that the warrant was originally issued in early January but was served only on Friday.

Bridges, who didn’t play in the NBA last season, faced charges of felony domestic and child abuse for an alleged assault on his partner in front of their children. However, he pleaded no contest to the domestic violence charge in November 2022, and the remaining counts were dismissed. He received three years of formal probation, one year of domestic violence counseling, one year of parenting classes, and was required to complete 100 hours of community service.

Bridges, who recently signed a 1-year deal with the Charlotte Hornets, will only have to serve 10 games of his 30-game suspension imposed by the NBA. This is because the league decided to credit him for the 20 missed games from the previous season when he was unable to play any games.

CNN reached out to the Hornets and Bridges’ attorney for comment. No response has been received yet.

Miles Bridges was drafted by the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round of the 2018 NBA Draft, and later traded to the Charlotte Hornets. He has played for the Hornets for four seasons. In the 2021-2022 season, he had his best performance with an average of 20.2 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 3.8 assists before the incident occurred.
