Lakers’ Jordan Hill Charged With Assault
If you watched the Lakers over the weekend, you’ll notice a relative unknown named Jordan Hill coming off the bench and cranking out some serious points for his team. However, he is probably going to miss some playoff time right along with his teammate Ron Artest thanks to a bout of stupidity. He’s been charged with “assaulting a family member” and here are all the details.
Court documents state Hill demanded that she pick up his phones, and when she turned away from him, Hill grabbed her from behind and put her in a chokehold in which she couldn’t breathe.
His girlfriend told police that she told Hill she wanted to go home and he booked her a flight back to Florida. Police say her friend picked her up from the airport and stated she was not herself and that she saw bruises on her legs and upper body.
According to police, they obtained photos of the injuries from Hill’s girlfriend that were consistent with her and her friend’s statements.
Well, there went his quick career. What the hell was he thinking?
