INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Former NBA No. 1 draft pick Greg Oden is due in court on charges alleging that he punched his ex-girlfriend in the face during a fight.
The free-agent center was scheduled to appear in a Marion County court Wednesday on charges of felony battery resulting in serious bodily injury, misdemeanor domestic battery and misdemeanor battery resulting in serious bodily injury.
The 26-year-old was arrested at his mother's Indianapolis home last Thursday and released later that day from jail. An affidavit says a witness told police Oden had punched the woman in the face, drawing blood.
The Associated Press left a phone message seeking comment with Oden's attorney.
The Portland Trail Blazers made Oden the top pick in the 2007 draft. He played for the Miami Heat last season.
