Breaking: Miles Bridges Denied Entry To Canada Due to Police Investigation

The Charlotte Hornets are expected to be without forward Miles Bridges for their game in Toronto against the Raptors Monday night, after he was denied entry into Canada due to an outstanding police investigation into his alleged violation of a protective order regarding a domestic violence incident. 

Bridges sat out all of last season due to his arrest on domestic violence charges in regards to his former girlfriend and their young child. As part of a plea deal, he had a criminal protective order slapped on him to stay away from the woman and his child for 10 years. 

But new charges allege that Bridges not only violated that order this summer, but he did so by allegedly pelting the woman's car with billiard balls, smashing the windshield and denting the windows, all while the children were in the car.

Adam Silver recently refused to comment on Bridges' future in the league, pending the outcome of the police investigation, but certainly another suspension (or banishment) could be forthcoming depending on the results. 

Bridges tweeted about his denial for entry to Toronto, then deleted the post.  

The Hornets are working to get Canada’s border decision reversed before the game tonight.
