Greg Oden, a former number-one NBA draft pick, was arrested early this morning in Lawrence, Indiana and charged with battery against a member of the opposite sex.
Police were called to the residence of Oden's mother around 3:30 a.m. and arrived "to find the victim crying and lying across a bed holding her face."
According to Bill McCleery and Matthew Glenesk of The Indianapolis Star, a witness told authorities that the basketball player “punched [the victim] in the face."
Moreover, law enforcement officials observed blood, nose swelling and forehead lacerations on the woman in question. They also noted blood on the sofa, carpet and floor.
