MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Police say Minnesota Timberwolves forward Dante Cunningham sent threatening messages to a woman he was living with that ''rose to a terroristic level.''
The Medina, Minn., police issued a statement Monday, one day after Cunningham was arrested for a second time in three days. Cunningham had already been charged with felony domestic assault for allegedly choking the woman last week.
He played for the Timberwolves in Orlando on Saturday night. The NBA's collective bargaining agreement requires the league and the Timberwolves are required to allow Cunningham to return to work while the legal process plays out.
Cunningham remains in custody following his second arrest, but has not been charged. He was scheduled for an initial court appearance on Monday afternoon related to his assault charges.
