Hill, who is in his third year in the league, was a Houston Rocket at the time of the incident and was part of a trade that sent veteran Derek Fisher to his former team.

Jordan,24, who is currently in Los Angeles, has to answer the charge in Houston where the alleged assault took place. Luna reportedly told police investigators that after she threw his cell phones on the floor during a February 29 argument, he “punched her in the legs, grabbed her, pulled her off the couch and dragged her to where the phones were, and threw her against the wall,” according to KTRK-TV. After she refused to pick up the phone, the she said that Hill grabbed her from behind and put her in a chokehold that cut off her breathing

According to the district attorney, Hill is facing a punishment of two to ten years in prison and a $10,000 fine, if convicted. A warrant for Hill’s arrest is expected. Luna has also been granted a restraining order against Hill.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Lakers organization has issued a statement on Monday about Jordan Hill’s case, reports ESPN:

“We are aware of the media reports alleging an incident involving Jordan Hill from two months ago when he was a member of the Houston Rockets,” the statement read. “We do not have any details regarding these reports and therefore, as well as due to the personal and legal aspects, it would not be appropriate for us to comment. Any further inquiries regarding this should be directed to Jordan’s representative.”
