Brooklyn Nets’ forward Rodions Kurucs was arrested Tuesday for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend earlier this summer.
According to the report, the 21-year-old forward is accused of choking the woman after a June 27 argument in his NYC apartment.
Reports say Kurucs allegedly grabbed a knife during the confrontation and screamed “I’m going to kill myself.”
Sources say the Latvian-born athlete then dropped the knife before grabbing the 32-year-old woman by the neck, throwing her on the bed, and slapping her.
The woman reportedly received medical treatment for rib injuries sustained during the alleged attack.
