Editors note: The following story contains graphic material detailing alleged physical abuse; reader discretion is advised.

Miles Bridges’ wife Mychelle Johnson broke her silence and shared a disturbing series of photos on social media that occurred after his alleged assault against her.

Court records show Bridges turned himself into Los Angeles authorities Wednesday for a physical altercation that happened Tuesday. He is being charged with felony domestic abuse and is due back in court July 20.

Bridges, an NBA standout with the Charlotte Hornets who attended Michigan State for two years and is a Flint native, posted a $130,000 bond Wednesday.

Friday morning, Johnson, the wife of Bridges and alleged victim in the incident, took to social media to share photos, what appears to be notes from a medical examination and her experience of what happened.

“I hate this it has come to this but I cant be silent anymore,” Johnson’s post read. “I’ve allowed someone to destroy my home, abuse me in every way possible and traumatize our kids for life.

“I have nothing to prove to the world, but I won’t allow anyone who could do something so horrible to have no remorse and paint a picture of something I’m not.”

The pictures show a swollen lip and nose, discolored hands, a swollen wrist, bruises on her ear, arm, back and cuts on her leg. On one page of her discharge papers from the emergency department, a series of injuries were listed for her diagnosis.

“Adult victim of physical abuse by male partner; Assault by strangulation; Brain concussion; Closed fracture of nasal bone; Contusion of Rib; Multiple Bruises; Strain of neck muscle,” the document reads.

Johnson, in her post, wrote she will no longer be silenced or let those around “him” continue to lie and protect “this person”.

“It’s unethical, it’s immoral, it’s truly SICK,” her post continued. “It hurts my heart because I’ve always had hope, and so much love and as scary as this is for me to do it’s time I stand up for myself.

“I won’t be silent to protect others anymore because I value myself and my kids more than anyones ‘image’ … a fracture(d) nose, wrist, torn eardrum, torn muscles in my neck from being choked until I went to seep and a severe concussion.”

The final slide on Johnson’s Instagram post is a video of what appears to be the couple’s son, Ace, who is three-and-a-half years old detailing to his grandmother what he saw happened.

In the video, he said “daddy choked mommy” and that (Ace) hit him and told him to be nice. He also said “(daddy) threw her phone out the window … because he wasn’t being nice.”

Johnson’s post said the incident happened in front of the couple’s children.

“I don’t need sympathy, I just don’t want this happening to anyone else, I just want this person to get help, my kids deserve better,” she wrote. “It hurts, everything hurts, this situation hurts, most importantly I’m scared and hurting for my kids who were witness to everything.”

The alleged incident occurred less than 48 hours before NBA free agency was set to begin, where Bridges was a top available name and expected to land a contract for more than $100 million.

The Detroit Pistons entered the week with enough money to make a lucrative offer, and he filled a need at the power forward spot and fit the rebuild timeline. But the team decided to take on contracts for draft picks instead.

“The Charlotte Hornets are aware of the situation involving Miles Bridges,” the team said in a statement Thursday. “We are in the process of gathering additional information. We will have no further comment at this time.”
