Miles Bridges has just a few months ago been reinstated by the NBA after the case that saw him accused of domestic violence against his ex-girlfriend. The Charlotte Hornets player had “accepted the charges.”, a sort of plea bargain that allowed him to avoid jail time. Being a restricted free agent at the time the investigation began, Bridges was without a team for a year unless he decided to stay in Charlotte another year. In the summer of 2024 he will officially be an unrestricted free agent.
In the meantime, however. Bridges’ criminal record has been further soiled. As reported by WSOC TV’s Joe Bruno, as many as two warrants for his arrest would currently be issued against him.
The first would date back to Jan. 2, 2023, for violation of the restraining order decided by the judge in the case of violence on his ex-girlfriend. No information is also available because the warrant has not been executed.
The second, on the other hand, has date October 6, 2023, much more recent. It is still an arrest warrant due to the violation of a restraining order. This time Bridges allegedly hurled billiard balls at his ex-girlfriend’s car, in which, by the way, his children were present. The balls allegedly damaged the car windows, while the player allegedly threatened the woman to “take everything away from her” including the children. The presence of the children in the car also directed charges of child abuse at Bridges.
There are two ongoing criminal incidents for Miles Bridges right now.

For now, the Hornets have not officially commented on these latest developments, but it will be interesting to see what they do. The reinstatement of Miles Bridges despite proven violence over his ex-girlfriend had already generated various controversies in recent months. Before officially returning to the court, Bridges will in any case have to serve a 30-game disqualification.
