Former NBA player Bryn Forbes was arrested on a family violence charge on Tuesday after allegedly assaulting the mother of his two children.

According to court documents, Forbes allegedly knocked on the woman’s apartment window on Monday, and when she let him in, he punched her in the head, then choked her with his forearms, the collar of her shirt, and then his hands.

She told him that she could not breathe, and his response was “If you can speak then you are not being choked,” according to the docs.

Forbes fled the scene before police arrived, but was arrested on Tuesday morning.

He was arrested in Bexar County in Texas, and jailed on a charge of assaulting a family member by choking/strangulation, which is a third-degree felony. He has a bail of $7,500 and was still in jail as of Tuesday afternoon.

Forbes was also arrested in February of last year, when he allegedly hit a woman he was seeing multiple times after they went out and an argument escalated and turned physical, but he entered into a pretrial diversion program in June.

Forbes played college basketball at Cleveland State and Michigan State before joining the San Antonio Spurs as an undrafted free agent. He spent his first four seasons there before signing with the Bucks, then going back to the Spurs the following season, then to the Nuggets. He played last season for the Timberwolves. In 25 games for Minnesota, he averaged 3.6 points, 0.7 assists and 0.6 total rebounds. He has not played a game this season with any team.
