Jordan Hill, now playing for the Los Angeles Lakers, has just been charged with felony assault for allegedly choking a family member during an altercation in Texas earlier this year, according to TMZ.
The charge was filed by the Harris County District Attorney in Houston. It’s unclear who Hill is accused of attacking.
The alleged incident took place on February 29.
If convicted, Hill faces up to 10 years in prison.
24-year-old Hill was recently traded to the Lakers from Houston in exchange for Derek Fisher … and has become a key member of the team.
Opening statements are scheduled to take place on April 23. The delay resulted from a prior commitment of the judge. Burns warned jurors to avoid any media coverage of the case or Hudson. He specifically cited an expected appearance by Hudson on an episode of “American Idol.”
“I am told that one of the witnesses in this case may be appearing on television Thursday night,” Burns said in a clear reference to Hudson.
On his role model:
“Usher is who I look to for guidance. From the beginning, he told me to put family first and you’ll always succeed, because your family will never leave you. He told me to always stay humble and never forget where I came from.”
On growing pp with his fans:
“A lot of times, when artists grow older, they lose their younger fans because they’re just trying to get older fans. But if you try to make good music, then you’ll just appease everybody. I just want to make music that’s good for everybody.”

John L. Wilson Jr., whose last known address was in the 7900 block of South Lafayette Avenue in Chicago, is scheduled to appear in court this morning around the same time funeral services will be held for Kelli O’Laughlin.
Wilson has been charged with first-degree murder and residential burglary, according to Sally Daly, a spokeswoman for the Cook County state’s attorney’s office. He is believed to have acted alone and has not made a statement to authorities, Daly said.
But a source said police obtained a DNA sample from a knit cap left behind in the O’Laughlin home and matched it to Wilson. He has three prior convictions, including one for armed robbery.
The O’Laughlin family received cruel text messages from the girl’s cellphone after the slaying, sources said. “There were texts that were made to a family member taunting the family about her death,” a source close to the investigation said.
