Bridges agent Rich Paul did not respond to questions from the Associated Press following the statement from the Attorney General.

Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon formalized the allegations of assaulting Bridges' partner Mychelle Johnson and mistreating minors in circumstances or conditions capable of causing serious injury or death.

Accused of causing severe physical harm to a victim of domestic violence: "Domestic violence causes physical, mental and emotional trauma that have a long-lasting impact on those who overcome them. Children who have witnessed episodes of violence in the family are particularly vulnerable and the impact on them is incalculable."

The episodes happened in late June, just before starting a free agency that would almost certainly have earned him a multimillion-dollar contract for the next few seasons. Instead now he risks going to jail. After two seasons in the NCAA championship with Michigan State he made himself eligible for the 2018 NBA Draft, being chosen as 12th overall pick by the Los Angeles Clippers and immediately traded to the Charlotte Hornets in exchange for 11th choice Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.
