The arrest of Bridges, the Hornets’ leading scorer last season, occurred on Wednesday, but the news came out this Thursday and the Charlotte team reported in a note that it is “aware” of the situation involving the player.
The North Carolina franchise also assured that it is seeking more information about the case. The player has been a free agent for just a few hours and has been summoned by the judge on July 20.
Bail was set after arrest at $130,000. according to the chain ESPN. In these cases, in the United States it is necessary to pay 10% of the amount established by the judge to be released, pending a new hearing.
Bridges was arrested just hours before he entered NBA free agency, which opens Thursday at 6:00 p.m. ET (-4 GMT). The forward had an average of 20.2 points, 7 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game and it is one of the most valued pieces on the market.
