Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón announced today that his office has filed felony domestic violence charges against Charlotte Hornets forward Miles Bridges.

“Domestic violence creates physical, mental and emotional trauma that has a lasting impact on survivors,” District Attorney Gascón said. “Children who witness family violence are especially vulnerable and the impact on them is immeasurable. Mr. Bridges will be held accountable for his actions and our Bureau of Victim Services will support the survivors through this difficult process.”

Bridges (dob 3/21/98) of Charlotte, North Carolina, faces one felony count of injuring a child’s parent and two felony counts of child abuse under circumstances or conditions likely to cause great bodily injury or death.


Case SA106817 includes an allegation of causing great bodily injury on the domestic violence victim.
