Lakers’ Hill strikes plea on charges he choked girlfriend
Back in March, Lakers reserve big man Jordan Hill was charged with assault after a fight with his girlfriend back in Houston where he allegedly bruised her legs and choked her.
This week he reached a plea deal in the case that will mean just a fine if he doesn’t repeat the incident, reports TMZ.
The judge in the case had put in place a protective order for the girlfriend.
Hill signed a two-year deal to stay with the Lakers this summer. He will back up Dwight Howard (and could see a lot of minutes if Howard isn’t ready to go when the season starts).
