Jordan Hill Charged With Felony Assault, Choking Family Member

After recording a double-double in Game 1 of the Lakers’ playoff series with the Denver Nuggets on Sunday, team forward Jordan Hill is facing a whole new set of challenges on Monday.

According to TMZ, Hill is being charged with three counts of felony assault that include choking a family member in Houston, Texas.

Los Angeles Lakers big man Jordan Hill has just been charged with felony assault for allegedly choking a family member during an altercation in Texas earlier this year … TMZ has learned.

The charge was filed by the Harris County District Attorney in Houston. It’s unclear who Hill is accused of attacking.

The alleged incident took place on February 29. If convicted, Hill faces up to 10 years in prison.

The timing couldn’t be worse for Los Angeles, who won yesterday’s Game 1 in convincing fashion, 103-88. Hill played great off the bench for L.A., scoring 10 points and grabbing 10 rebounds in 24 minutes of play.

Hill took to Twitter when he first heard the charges, and apparently is surprised by the accusations.
