Former NBA point player Eric Bledsoe was arrested for domestic violence earlier this week, TMZ Sports reports.
Bledsoe was arrested on Wednesday after officers responded to a call claiming that he had struck his girlfriend. When authorities arrived at his Lost Hills, California residence, Bledsoe was booked for misdemeanor domestic violence. The 32-year-old former NBA player was taken to the Lost Hills Sheriff’s station, but has since been released.
His girlfriend, who has not been named, reportedly shared a since-deleted post on Instagram that showed a red mark across her face. “NO RELATIONSHIP LIKE THIS IS EVER WORTH STAYING IN,” the post read, per TMZ. “Domestic violence is real! This wasn’t the first time but I sat here and stayed so it’s my fault!! … ERIC BLEDSOE really is a monster.”
Bledsoe most recently played for the Los Angeles Clippers, where he also began his NBA career in 2010.
