Former NBA Champion Arrested On Shocking Felony Assault Charges

Bryn Forbes was a reliable depth guard for several NBA teams in the previous seven seasons. While he hasn’t played in the NBA this season, he was a member of the Milwaukee Bucks during the 2020-21 campaign when they won the world championship.

But now, he has been hit with some very serious legal charges stemming from an alleged domestic violence incident.

Mariah Medina of WOAI, a television station based in San Antonio, reported on Tuesday, that Forbes was arrested and charged with felony assault.

What’s alarming is the fact that, as Medina pointed out, Forbes was arrested almost exactly a year ago on a similar charge.

The details of the incident are disturbing, and if true, Forbes could be facing some serious legal penalties.

Forbes broke into the NBA as an undrafted player during the 2016-17 season with the San Antonio Spurs. He barely played during his rookie year, but the following year, he emerged as a ball-handling two-guard who could score a bit and shoot accurately from 3-point range.

During the 2018-19 season, the 6-foot-2 man averaged 11.8 points a game, hitting 42.6 percent of his 3-point attempts. That production got him some consideration for the Most Improved Player award.

Last season, he appeared in 25 games for the Minnesota Timberwolves and put up 3.6 points in 10.7 minutes a game, although his shooting efficiency dropped precipitously compared to prior years.

Alleged incidents such as the one Forbes is in trouble for receive lots of headlines, and some use them to attack NBA and NFL players while accusing them of being unwholesome characters who are bad examples for the rest of society.

However, by and large, pro athletes are very community-oriented and family-oriented, and the many good deeds they perform to help children and underprivileged people never really get much attention.
