Greg Oden Arrested In Indianapolis

Greg Oden was arrested last night in Indianapolis after he allegedly punched a woman.

Details about Oden’s arrest aren’t available yet but USA Today reports that the former No. 1 NBA draft pick was arrested at about 4 am in a suburban community of Lawrence.

Police found the victim, reportedly Oden’s ex-girlfriend, crying on the bed when they arrived.

A witness said: “He punched her in the face.”

The victim was reportedly uncooperative but the witness urged her to speak, saying: “There isn’t that much love in the world. You need to tell that he punched you in the face.”

Oden, who faces a preliminary charge of battery, was reportedly calm and apologetic after police arrived. The former NBA star said: “I was wrong, and I know what has to happen.”

This is the at least the second time this month that a professional athlete has been in the news for domestic violence. Ray Rice was recently given a two game suspension by the NFL after he knocked his wife unconscious in an elevator.
