NBA Player Arrested For Second Time In Less Than A Week
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Dante Cunningham is in trouble with the law once again after getting arrested for a second time this week.
Cunningham was arrested Sunday (April 7), for on “suspicion of making terrorist threats.”
Earlier last week he was charged with domestic assault for an incident that had involved his girlfriend whom he had reportedly been in a relationship with for the past eight months. He had reportedly choked her in the first incident.
According to Medina police officer Chris McGill to the Associated Press,
Cunningham, 26, was arrested early Thursday and charged with felony domestic assault. According to a criminal complaint filed in Hennepin County District Court, the power forward’s girlfriend told police he attacked her during an argument early that morning in his suburban Minneapolis home. The woman, who isn’t named in the complaint, told police he kicked down a locked bedroom door, grabbed her around the neck and slammed her against the wall, choking her for 15 to 20 seconds during which she could not breathe.
His team the Minnesota Timberwolves also released a statement.
“We reiterate that the Minnesota Timberwolves do not condone the behavior described in the accusations. We continue to wait for the legal process to run its course and will have further comment when appropriate.”
Timberwolves next game is against the San Antonio Spurs. He had not played in the previous game, a 100-92 loss to the Orlando Magic.
