What are the Charges on Miles Bridges?

Criminal charges linked to a domestic violence case involving Charlotte Hornets forward Miles Bridges were dropped on Tuesday due to "insufficient evidence," according to court documents.

Bridges had faced three charges stemming from an alleged violation of a domestic violence protection order on October 6, 2023: misdemeanor child abuse, and injury to personal property.

Prosecutors concluded that they wouldn't succeed in the trial due to conflicting accounts provided by the woman who accused Bridges. Initially, she attributed damage to her vehicle to another woman but later claimed Bridges caused it.

Eventually, she expressed uncertainty about the cause of the damage.

Miles Bridges’ Legal Troubles and Court Proceedings

Bridges was set to appear in court on February 20 to address those charges. He missed the entire 2022-23 NBA season due to a domestic violence incident dating back to June 2022, where he was accused of assaulting the mother of his children in front of them in Los Angeles.

In November 2022, Bridges entered a plea of no contest to one felony charge of injuring a child's parent. In exchange, he received three years of probation without jail time.

As part of the agreement, the 25-year-old Bridges was also mandated to complete 52 weeks of parenting classes, 52 weeks of domestic violence counseling, and 100 hours of community service.

Miles Bridges’ Legal Charges and Suspension

Prior to entering the plea, Bridges had been confronted with three felony charges, including the one to which he ultimately pleaded no contest, as well as two others related to child abuse likely to result in serious bodily harm or death. The potential consequence for these charges could have amounted to a maximum of 11 years behind bars.

As a repercussion, Bridges was sidelined for the initial 10 games of the current season due to a suspension imposed by the league.

Bridges, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent at the conclusion of the season, is currently averaging 20.3 points and 7.6 rebounds per game for the Hornets.
