Charlotte Hornets star Miles Bridges was arrested Wednesday and charged with felony domestic violence in Los Angeles.

According to TMZ, Bridges turned himself in to police on Wednesday, after a woman called 911 to report he assaulted her.

The woman had visible injuries when police arrived at a Los Angeles residence, but Bridges was already gone. He was released from jail after posting $130,000 bond, TMZ reports.

Bridges made headlines earlier this week after ESPN reported the Hornets declined to offer him a max contract.

Bridges is a restricted free agent who demanded $30 million per season in a max contract after turning down a four-year, $60 million deal just prior to the start of his breakout 2021-22 season.

Bridges is the team's leading scorer. However, the Hornets are reportedly wary of re-signing a player who may be a junkie.

According to Total Pro Sports, Bridges' actions off the court made it easier for the Hornets to make their decision.

Lean, also called purple drank, is a mixture of prescription codeine cough syrup, a soft drink and hard candy in a styrofoam cup.

"He's not being offered, from what I'm told, a max contract from the Charlotte Hornets right now," said Brian Windhorst via ESPN. "So, he's going to go out into the market place, starting on Thursday or Friday, and see if he can get that offer from somewhere else."

Trouble seems to follow the Flint, Michigan native. Bridges was ejected for hitting a young fan in the face with his mouthguard during a game against the Atlanta Hawks at State Farm Arena on April 13, 2022 in Atlanta.

A max contract would include over $30 million per season and bonuses for Bridges. But reports are that the Hornets refused to pay a max contract to a possible junkie.

NBA star Miles Bridges apologized for throwing his mouthguard into the stands and hitting a young fan.

The incident happened on Wednesday when the Charlotte Hornets took on the Atlanta Hawks at State Farm Arena in a single-elimination play-in game.

Rappers Jay Z (pictured), Nelly, and Quavo were among the celebrities sitting courtside to watch the play-in game.

According to PEOPLE, Bridges, 24, was ejected in the fourth quarter after receiving a second technical for arguing a foul call.

As the crowd cheered his ejection, Miles removed his mouthguard and flung it at a fan while leaving the court. However, his aim was off and the saliva-covered mouthguard hit a 16-year-old girl in the face.

The Hornets went on to lose to the Hawks 132-103. The loss eliminated Charlotte from the NBA playoffs. The Hornets haven't made the playoffs since 2016.

After the game, Bridges took to Twitter to say his behavior was "unacceptable."

"Somebody get me in contact with that little girl. That's unacceptable," he tweeted alongside a video of the incident. The girl is seen on the left wearing a red jacket in the video.

He also told reporters, "That's definitely unacceptable on my part, and I take full responsibility. I'm ready for any consequence that the NBA gives me."

Bridges told ESPN, "I was aiming for the guy that was screaming at me and it hit a little girl."

A silicone mouthguard is considered a biohazard since it is saturated in a bodily fluid (saliva) and could transmit an infectious disease such as Covid-19 or herpes.

Bridges told reporters he contacted the girl and apologized to her.

According to ESPN, the 16-year-old girl did not want her name published to protect her privacy.

"I lost my cool last night," Bridges told reporters. "...That was embarrassing on my part... I take full responsibility."

No punishment was announced by the NBA or the Hornets. But in a similar incident, Warriors star Stephen Curry was fined $25,000 in 2016 for throwing his mouthguard into the stands and hitting a fan.

NBA stars LeBron James (left) and LaMelo Ball (right) suffered serious injuries in NBA games over the weekend.

James suffered a high ankle injury during this weekend's Lakers loss to the Atlanta Hawks at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The 36-year-old forward injured his ankle when Hawks forward Solomon Hill fell on top of him as he tried to secure a loose ball on the court.

James screamed out in agony, but he stayed in the game and scored a 3-pointer before throwing a chair and hobbling to the locker room.

An MRI confirmed a high ankle sprain. James' injury opens the door for Trail Blazers superstar Damian Dillard to win this season's MVP award.

The Lakers are without their two superstars after losing forward Anthony Davis to a calf strain in his right leg.

In other NBA injury news, Charlotte Hornets rookie guard LaMelo Ball will miss the rest of the season after fracturing his wrist on Saturday.

Ball #2 of the Hornets fractured his right wrist on this play as his shot was defended by Nicolas Batum #33 of the LA Clippers during the second quarter at the Staples Center.

The 19-year-old guard, who was expected to win Rookie of the Year, averaged 15.9 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 6.1 assists per game.
