Dante Cunningham Arrested for the Second Time in a Week

by April 07, 2014

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Dante Cunningham found himself in handcuffs once again Sunday, as police took the 26-year-old into custody on suspicion of making terrorist threats. Per KSTP TV:

This comes after Cunningham was arrested on suspicion of domestic assault in Wayzata early Thursday morning.

Medina Police say they were called to a residence in Medina around 4 a.m. on Thursday. Police say Cunningham left the home shortly after the incident, but did not resist arrest when he returned.

A criminal complaint filed in Hennepin County District Court says his girlfriend told police that during an argument at Cunningham’s home, he slammed her against the wall and choked her for 15 to 20 seconds. Police say she didn’t require medical treatment.

Cunningham was released from jail Friday and rejoined the team Saturday in Orlando, Fla.

The Timberwolves released the following statement after Cunningham’s second arrest, “The situation with Dante Cunningham is very fluid and we continue to monitor all available information. We reiterate that the Minnesota Timberwolves do not condone the behavior described in the accusations. We continue to wait for the legal process to run its course and will have further comment when appropriate.”
