The battered wife of Charlotte Hornets star Miles Bridges shared photos of the injuries she allegedly sustained during a domestic violence incident.

Bridges, 24, was arrested Wednesday and charged with felony domestic violence in Los Angeles, TMZ reported.

Bridges turned himself in to police after his wife, Chelley Jonson, called 911 to report he assaulted her.

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

Someone in Bridges' camp suggested he hit her in self-defense after she attacked him first. They claim Bridges suffered years of abuse at his wife's hands.

An outraged Johnson took to social media to defend herself against the scurrilous accusations. She shared photos of her facial injuries in her post.

"I hate that it has come to this but I can't be silent anymore," she said. "I've allowed someone to destroy my home, abuse me in every way possible and traumatize our kids for life. I have nothing to prove to the world, but I won't allow anyone who could do something so horrible to have no remorse and paint a picture of something I'm not."

She continued:

"I won't allow the people around him to continue to silence me and continue to lie to protect this person. It's unethical, it's immoral, it's truly SICK. It hurts my heart because I've always had hope, and so much love and as scary as this is for me to do it's time I stand up for myself. I won't be silent to protect others anymore because I value myself and my kids more than anyones 'image'... a fractured nose, wrist, torn eardrum, torn muscles in my neck from being choked until i went to sleep and a severe concussion. I don't need sympathy, I just don't want this happening to anyone else, I just want this person to get help, my kids deserve better. That's all i want. It hurts, everything hurts, this situation hurts, most importantly I'm scared and hurting for my kids who were witness to everything. Please respect my families privacy and stop with the disgusting rumors and allegations [sic]."

"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."

A young mother who was kidnapped from a DeKalb County daycare by her ex-boyfriend knew she was going to die when she phoned her relatives to say goodbye.

DeKalb police responded to a domestic violence call on Wednesday afternoon at the Education Elevation Children's Academy on Snapfinger Park Circle, WSB-TV reported.

Police said 22-year-old Taco Nash followed 21-year-old Mi'Ckeye Montgomery to the daycare, where he confronted her, as she arrived to pick up their 16-month-old daughter, Khloe.

Nash reportedly kidnapped Montgomery and Khloe, forcing them into a nearby wooded area, where he killed Montgomery in front of the child, sister, Chancierra Coleman police said.

Before she was killed, Montgomery called a relative, according to her sister, Chancierra Coleman.

"She was just saying, 'Thank you,' and that she loved everybody. She knew he was about to kill her," Coleman told Channel 2 Action News reporter Tom Jones.

"The police said that it looked like she may have been holding Khloe when he shot her, because it was blood splatter all over her."

Khloe was not harmed.

The family said Nash shot Montgomery during a previous incident because she broke up with him. They said he had been arrested repeatedly for assaulting her, and he was allowed to bond out of jail every time.

According to WSB-TV, Nash has two open domestic violence cases in Fulton and DeKalb.

"They failed to protect and serve," Coleman said. "They failed to do their job."

The family said he was wearing an ankle monitor when he killed her.

"She didn't deserve that, and Khloe doesn't deserve to be without a mother," Coleman said.

Nash has been charged with malice murder and is being held in the DeKalb County Jail without bond.

Police arrested Dodd's ex-boyfriend Deundrea Holloway, 22, on suspicion of murdering Dodd and her unborn baby girl.

Noel said Holloway was not the father of Dodd's unborn baby, and they had a violent on-again, off-again relationship.

Noel said that because of the "nature" of Dodd's relationship with Holloway, she would call or text her daughter every day. But when Dodd hadn't responded to her calls and texts, she decided to check on her.

A neighbor told 5 On Your Side News that Noel "looked so broken" after discovering her daughter's decapitated body.

"She turned around, she looked at us, me and my boyfriend were standing in the doorway and she said, 'He [expletive] killed her,'" the neighbor said.

In an emotional video, Alton Police Chief Marcos Pulido called Holloway a "savage monster".

"What was found, was absolutely terrible," he said. "What happened to 22 year old Liese Dodd is beyond irreprehensible. It's abominable. It's completely terrible... What Deundrea Holloway, what that monster, was charged with today can make some people lost for words."

Pulido added: "She was savagely, savagely killed. She was decapitated by a freaking savage monster. Her unborn child was also killed as a result of this. So she was brutally murdered as well as her unborn child."

Noel said that, knowing Holloway is off the streets is a relief.

"I'm glad that he's off the streets, and that is my big hope is that he's no longer able to do this to anyone else."

Chicago police were called to the home of Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx after her husband called 911 to report she assaulted him.

Police were summoned to the south suburban home by Kelley Foxx who reported that Kim Foxx had battered him during a domestic incident at 10:09 p.m. Saturday, according to CWBChicago.

"While en route to the address, dispatch informed us the domestic was physical and there were no injuries 'yet,'" an officer wrote.

When police arrived at the residence, Kim and Kelley Foxx were standing on the front porch. Police separated the combatants to get their side of the story.

Kelley Foxx said Kim Foxx "got mad about something that was posted on Facebook that he did," an officer wrote.

Kim Foxx "became physical" when he refused to leave, according to the police report.

Kelley Foxx told police that his wife blocked his exit from a bathroom, grabbed his collar, and threw his video game controller when he tried to play a video game.

"He tried to turn on the TV and Kimberly snatched the controller out of his and threw the controller," the report continued.

Kim Foxx apparently overheard what her husband was telling the officer and yelled, "All that is true," an officer wrote.

Kelley Foxx said his wife slapped him on his left cheek, but officers did not observe any marks, prompting Kelley Foxx to say he "just wants to be left alone," according to the report.

"She can't come in my personal space and put her hands on me," police quoted Kelley as saying.

He allegedly told the officer "he wanted to make sure someone understands what is happening here," meaning that he's a victim of ongoing domestic violence.

"He added that he just wanted it to stop," the office wrote.

Kim and Kelley Foxx are pictured with their four daughters.

The couple's 19-year-old daughter told cops that she only heard a disagreement and did not see anything.

No arrests were made and the Kelleys chose to remain in the home Saturday night.

When an officer asked Kim Foxx if she felt safe in the home, she reportedly answered, "I mean, he's not crazy."

Heard, 36, became emotional as she recalled Depp's first act of physical violence. But she contradicted an earlier statement when she said the violence began in 2013.

Heard said the violence started when Depp attacked her after she asked about his "Wino Forever" tattoo - a tribute to his ex-girlfriend, actress Winona Ryder.

Heard's lawyers provided multiple photos of Heard at red carpet events with "scars" on her arms. They claimed the scars occurred in Australia, when Depp held her against a glass-covered countertop and sexually abused her with a liquor bottle. She said the bottle slashed the tip of his finger.

But Depp, 58, previously said the injury happened when she hurled a liquor bottle at his hand.

Heard previously testified that Depp accused her of defecating on his side of their bed.

Heard also told the court that everything she said until now "has been the truth."

Depp will be brought back to testify before the trial wraps up.

South Carolina police solved a woman's murder after her killer dropped dead while burying the body in his backyard.

Police responded to a 911 call about an unresponsive man in the backyard of a Trenton home on Saturday.

Sheriff Jody Rowland said deputies responded to the home to check on "an unresponsive male lying in his yard."

Deputies found Joseph McKinnon's body near a freshly dug grave. While investigating his death deputies inspected the makeshift grave and found the body of McKinnon's girlfriend Patricia Dent, 65.

Authorities theorize that McKinnon, 60, killed Dent inside the home then buried her body in the yard. He was in the process of covering the hole with dirt when he suffered an apparent cardiac arrest and died.

An autopsy determined Dent died by strangulation. Her body was bound and wrapped in trash bags before being placed in the hole. The grave was partially filled with dirt when McKinnon collapsed and died.

McKinnon and Dent lived in the home together. She was supposed to be at work at the Mount Vintage golf course the day she died, but she didn't show up and didn't respond to calls and texts according to reports.

A bystander who witnessed a man violently stabbing a woman outside a school got into his car and mowed down the killer.

Wafah Chkaifi, 43, was fatally stabbed by her ex-boyfriend Leon McCaskre, 41, moments after she dropped off her two children at school on Monday morning.

The horrific incident happened at 9 a.m. at a school in Maida Vale, West London.

Another parent who witnessed the stabbing got into his car and mowed down McCaskre near the school.

Police arrested the driver, a 26-year-old man, on suspicion of murder but he has since posted bond.

Heartbroken family members called the driver a "hero" for attempting to intervene and save Chkaifi, who filed for a restraining order after years of abuse.

"The man who killed my sister is a demon. The man who killed him is a hero. He deserves a medal from the queen," a family member told The Sun UK newspaper.

"There is no way he should go through the justice system for what he did. He tried to help her and for my sister and our family he is a hero."

The family member said McCaskre had a court date for violating a restraining order against him.

"He was supposed to be in court last week for breaching a stalking order but didn't show up. My sister even has a panic alarm in her flat to protect herself from him. The police are aware of his past but this still happened. He was a demon. He was a monster but the driver is a hero. He saw what was happening and tried to stop it. I want to say thank you again."

Her son added: "Everyone who knew my mum knows she was a good woman. She didn't deserve this. Keep her in your prayers."
