Dante Cunningham arrested on domestic assault allegations

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

The former Villanova forward has not yet been charged

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Dante Cunningham was arrested on allegations of domestic assault early Thursday morning (H/T to CBS Sports). The former Villanova Wildcats star was removed from a Wayzata, MN home shortly after 4am after allegations were made by a female, who was showing signs of abuse on her body per the Star Tribune. She did not require medical attention at the scene, according to police.

According to KMSP, he was booked into Hennepin County Jail shortly after 6am, and is currently being held without bail. Charges have not yet been filed.

Cunningham will not travel with the team for a two-game roadtrip through Florida where the Wolves will face the Miami Heat and Orlando Magic. The Wolves' have issued a statement:

"We are aware of the matter involving Dante Cunningham and are in the process of gathering more information. Dante will not be traveling with the team to Miami this afternoon. The Minnesota Timberwolves organization takes the matter very seriously and does not condone the type of behavior that is associated with this situation. However, we need to let the legal process run its course, and will have further comment at the appropriate time."

Cunningham is in the final year of his current contract in Minnesota and is due to hit the open market. If he is charged, it likely will spell the end of him in Minnesota and hurt his chances of signing a more lucrative deal once he hits free agency.
