The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed Friday that Charlotte Hornets banned free agent Miles Bridges has been charged with domestic violence resulting from an incident earlier this week.

Posted by LAPD on Twitter That Bridges was arrested for “intimate partner violence with injury,” a felony, on Wednesday following an incident two days earlier in West Los Angeles, and was booked on a felony domestic violence warrant.

He was released on a $130,000 bond and has a July 20 court date. The LAPD said it does not issue police reports on domestic violence arrests.

Michelle Johnson, the mother of two of Bridges’ young children, posted several photos on Instagram Friday of injuries and a medical report that read, “Victim of physical abuse by male partner, strangulation attack, brain concussion; closed Fracture nose bone, rib injury, multiple wounds, neck muscle strain.”

She didn’t mention Bridges by name, but wrote on Instagram: “I hate that it’s come to this but I can’t keep quiet anymore. I’ve seen someone destroying my house, abusing me in every way and our I have nothing to prove to the world, but I will not allow someone who can do such a terrible thing that he has no regrets and who I am not going to paint a picture of him. I will not allow people around me to silence me and continue to lie to protect this person.”

Bridges’ agent, Rich Paul, has not returned phone calls to the Associated Press and it was unclear whether he had an attorney. Attempts to reach Johnson were also unsuccessful and the AP could not locate an attorney of record for him.

Bridges, 24, is a restricted free agent who hopes to command large sums of money in the free-agent market this summer after a breakout season.

The 6-foot-7, 225-pound bridge was the Hornets’ leading scorer last season, averaging 20.2 points and seven rebounds in his fourth NBA season.

The Hornets made a qualifying offer to Bridge earlier this week, giving them a chance to match any offer sheets made by another team. The team indicated earlier this week that it wanted to re-sign him, ahead of information about Bridges’ arrest.

The Hornets issued a statement on Thursday indicating they were looking into the incident. “We are in the process of gathering more information,” NBA spokesman Mike Bass said.

Associated Press information was used in this report.
