Hornets’ Miles Bridges ‘is denied entry into Canada with the decision unlikely to be reversed in time for game vs. Toronto Raptors’ amid legal issues for the NBA star, who pleaded guilty to domestic violence charges last year

  • Bridges, 25, pleaded no contest to a domestic violence charge last year
  • The alleged incident involved the mother of Bridges' two children

Charlotte Hornets forward Miles Bridges has been denied entry into Canada for Monday's game against the Toronto Raptors, according to multiple reports β€” possibly due to an issue stemming from domestic violence allegations against the NBA star.

Canadian border officials have the right to deny entry to anyone convicted of a crime outside their jurisdiction.

Bridges, 25, pleaded no contest last year to a domestic violence charge for wounding Mychelle Johnson in front of their two children in June 2022. Johnson shared photos days later of her injuries that she allegedly suffered during the attack had suffered, although she didn't say anything about it to Bridges by name and subsequently deleted the social media post.

He avoided jail time as part of his plea deal, but was sentenced to three years of probation.

It's unlikely the decision to ban Bridges from entering Canada will be reversed when it comes time for him to compete in Monday night's game in Toronto, according to ESPN.

Team officials did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com's request for clarification on Bridges' current situation with Canadian border officials.

In October, Bridges was issued a criminal summons accusing him of violating a protective order stemming from a domestic violence case that derailed his career last year.

The summons also includes allegations of child abuse and damage to personal property. In addition, a violation of protective order notice was issued against Bridges in January, although it has not yet been served, the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office told The Associated Press at the time.

Bridges is currently serving three years of probation after pleading no contest in exchange for no jail time in the June 2022 domestic violence case involving the mother of his two children, who accused Bridges of assaulting her in front of the children have attacked.

Bridges must also abide by a 10-year criminal protection order for the woman, weekly testing for narcotics and marijuana, and restitution, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office.
