Basketball player Miles Bridges has reportedly been arrested in Los Angeles on a felony warrant.

Officer Matthew Cruz, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department, confirmed to The Times that a 24-year-old named Miles Bridges was arrested Wednesday in West L.A. on a warrant, but Cruz was not able to confirm information about the warrant, further information about the case or whether the person arrested is the NBA player.

Bridges turned himself in after an alleged physical altercation that occurred Tuesday, according to the website.
