Brooklyn Nets player Rodions Kurucs has been arrested after reportedly choking his then-girlfriend.
Kurucs, 21, was arrested Tuesday stemming from the incident, which reportedly occurred on June 27th. The forward is accused of pushing her on the bed, slapping her in the face twice, biting her lip and then picking her up and tossed her on the bed hard enough to hurt her ribs. The couple have since broken up.
During the arraignment, Judge Gina Abadi issued an order of protection and told Kurucs to stay away from the woman. She ordered him released without bail, with no objection from prosecutors.
