2007 top NBA draft pick Greg Oden arrested on battery charges in Indianapolis after 'bloodying former girlfriend's face'

Former No. 1 NBA draft pick Greg Oden has been arrested in Indianapolis on battery charges alleging that he punched a woman in the face.

Police in the suburban community of Lawrence say the 26-year-old was arrested early Thursday on two preliminary counts of misdemeanor battery and remains jailed.

A police report says officers called to a home found a woman on a sofa with a bloody face.

 
 

Oden allegedly told officers 'things got out of control' during an argument with his ex-girlfriend and he punched her in the face as others tried to hold him back.

According to officers on the scene the victim's face exhibited 'blood, swelling to the nose, lacerations to the forehead and nose area' and a flower pot had been knocked over during the argument.
