Clippers center Willie Reed was charged with misdemeanor domestic violence against his wife, Jasmine Reed.

Ira Winderman of the South Florida SunSentinel:

The statement released by Miami-based attorney Ivlis Mantilla from Jasmine Reed reads:

“This incident has been totally blown out of proportion. I did not call the police and I did not ask anyone to call the police on my behalf. Willie is a good man and a great father. I have no intention of pressing charges and I have asked the authorities to immediately dismiss all charges against Willie. This is a private matter between my husband and I and for the sake of our family I would like to keep it that way.”

Domestic violence is complicated.
