(WGHP) — Former NBA All-Star Amar’e Stoudemire was arrested on Saturday in Miami.
Stoudemire’s arrest came just hours after he received his master’s degree from the University of Miami.
According to the arrest report, Stoudemire rushed inside his daughter’s room after taking issue with her “attitude” when she responded to her grandmother calling her name. From there, he allegedly punched her on the right side of her jaw and slap her face causing a bloody nose.
Stoudemire is facing a single misdemeanor battery charge and was given a $1,500 bond, according to Miami-Dade County court records.
Stoudemire starred in the NBA for 15 seasons, most notably for the Phoenix Suns and New York Knicks where he was a six-time NBA All-Star selection.
