Detroit Pistons’ forward, Charlie Villanueva is the latest professional athlete that finds himself in a legal bind. Villanueva was hit with a domestic assault charge stemming for an incident that reportedly happened on May 17th in Burlington Ontario.
The 25-year-old Villanueva was released by Halton Regional Police on a promise to appear in court on July 9. The name of complainant and other details about the incident weren’t available Tuesday.
His lawyer, Owen Wigderson, says Villanueva, “denies all allegations of wrongdoing and I’m very confident that he’ll be exonerated.”
Yep, it’s definitely the offseason.
