Charlotte Hornets' Miles Bridges arrested in Los Angeles on eve of free agency

Charlotte Hornets forward Miles Bridges was arrested in Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon

 a Los Angeles Police Department spokeswoman confirmed to The Associated Press on Thursday.

The LAPD did not release details on the charges

TMZ has reported that Bridges is facing felony domestic violence charges.

"The Charlotte Hornets are aware of the situation involving Miles Bridges

 the team said in a statement Thursday

"We are in the process of gathering additional information

We will have no further comment at this time."

Bridges, the Hornets' leading scorer last season, is set to become a restricted free agent and could command a max contract in the coming weeks

The news comes on the eve of NBA free agency

which begins Thursday night with teams able to speak with free agents.

Bridges, 24, averaged career highs with 20.2 points and 7.0 rebounds last season in what amounted to a breakout season for the four-year

NBA veteran while playing alongside All-Star point guard LaMelo Ball.
