Former NBA player Anthony Morrow faces kidnapping and strangulation charges after being arrested Feb. 10.
Morrow was arrested in Charlotte and eventually released on a $15,000 bond.
Morrow allegedly assaulted a woman from his hometown and is facing charges of assault on a female, assault by strangulation, communicating threats and second-degree kidnapping.
The 37-year-old was apparently dating the woman at the time of the incident. Court documents say Morrow “[struck] her multiple times with his fists,” “[squeezed] her neck with his hands,” and that the victim had “scratches on the right side of her neck, a cut lip and abrasions on her forehead.”
