NBA Star striker Miles Bridges, 24, has been accused of punching his girlfriend Mychelle Johnson in front of their two young children.
The indictment, filed The angel on Tuesday, stem from two separate altercations on June 27 and 28 that prosecutor George Gascón said allegedly turned violent.
After the alleged beating, Johnson shared snaps on social media of himself with a badly bruised face.
She suffered a broken nose, a concussion and other serious injuries during the violence now being inflicted on Bridges.
“Domestic violence causes physical, mental and emotional trauma that has a lasting impact on survivors,” Gascón said. “Children who witness domestic violence are particularly vulnerable and the impact on them is immeasurable.
‘Mister. Bridges will be held accountable for his actions and our Victim Services Office will support survivors through this difficult process.’
Bridges faces one felony for harming a parent and two felonies for child molestation. He was first arrested on June 29 and remains at large on $130,000 bail.

He was released on $130,000 bail while the investigation continued.
It came to a head when Johnson called the police after the second incident. He had left the crime scene before they arrived.
The next day, she said she “won’t be silent anymore,” posting several photos to her Instagram page that showed bruises on her face, back, hands, ear and leg.
Johnson also released a medical report detailing the extent of her injuries.
She was said to have been strangled, suffered a concussion and a bruised rib. The diagnosis read: “Adult victim of physical abuse by male partner”.
“I allowed someone to destroy my home, abuse me in any way they could, and traumatize our children for life,” she wrote.
She said she suffered muscle tears in her neck “from choking to falling asleep.”
“I have nothing to prove to the world, but I won’t let someone who could do something so horrible be unrepentant and paint a picture of something I’m not.
“I will not allow the people around him to keep silencing me and keep lying to protect this person. It’s unethical, it’s immoral, it’s really sick,” she said.
Johnson and Bridges have been together since 2016 and have two young children together

Johnson said Thursday she suffered a broken nose, broken wrist, torn eardrum and torn muscles in her neck “from choking to falling asleep.”
Along with the photos showing the injuries, Johnson also released a medical document showing that she had been strangled, suffered a concussion and a bruised rib on Tuesday. The diagnosis read: “Adult victim of physical abuse by male partner”
Both the NBA and the Hornets said they were briefed on the charges.
“These are very serious allegations that we will continue to monitor,” the Hornets told the Associated Press. “As this is a legal matter, we will not be making any further comments at this time.”
The 12th Election of 2018 NBA Draft, Bridges earned $16 million playing for the Hornets for four seasons. He became a free agent in June and the team extended an $8 million offer for the 2022-23 season.
Michael Scotto of Hoops Hype speculated that he could come up with an annual salary of $25 million before the arrest and felony charges became public.
It’s unclear how the case will affect his professional career.
Earlier this month, Bridges posted a picture of a purple drink and what appeared to be a joint in his hand on social media. His followers were quick to accuse him of lean drinking, a concoction typically containing cough syrup containing codeine and promethazine, along with a soft drink or alcohol
Bridges has earned a reputation as a hothead on and off the pitch.
After being kicked out of a game in Atlanta for verbally abusing officials in April, he tried to throw his mouthguard at a male heckler but accidentally hit a 16-year-old female fan in the face instead.
Bridges apologized when he later addressed the media.
“I aimed at the guy who was yelling at me and it hit a little girl,” Bridges said. “This is definitely unacceptable on my part and I take full responsibility.
“It’s not typical for me. you were around me; I don’t act like that or ever flash like that. So that was definitely wrong.”

He later denied the accusation, saying it was “pink lemonade.”
At Michigan State, the Flint native was a 2018 first-team All-Big and consensus second-team All-American.
With the Hornets last season, he became the primary beneficiary of the team’s dynamic young point guard LaMelo Ball, averaging 20.2 points per game on nearly 50 percent shooting.
Bridges will be arraigned in LA Superior Court on Wednesday.
Bridges was ejected after berating officials and receiving his second technical foul with six minutes remaining in the fourth quarter of the Hornets’ 132-103 loss to the Hawks. While storming off, the irate 24-year-old was berated by several Atlanta fans and appeared to insult one man in particular. Bridges then threw his mouthpiece (circled in red) toward the fan, but ended up hitting a girl two seats down
