Kevin Porter Jr. left numerous NBA fans disappointed on Monday as it was revealed he was arrested and charged with second-degree assault and strangulation. The arrest stemmed from an alleged incident involving his WNBA girlfriend Kyrse Gondrezick. Overall, the story is quite harrowing. Essentially, Porter Jr. and Gondrezick got into a dispute. She subsequently locked KPJ out of his hotel room. He eventually broke in and began assaulting her. The police were called by hotel staff, and he was then arrested and charged.

Today, the situation has become a lot scarier as the Associated Press has reported on the injuries that Gondrezick suffered. As you can see in the tweets below, Porter Jr. allegedly struck Gondrezick in the face, numerous times. This subsequently led to a cut above her eye, and she was also bruised up and in pain. Moreover, she reportedly has a fractured vertebra in her neck. These are horrific injuries, and our heart goes out to Gondrezick during this difficult time.
