11:40 AM PDT: TMZ has obtained the police report describing the incident, and it reveals that the alleged victim is Hill's girlfriend, Darlene Luna. 

According to the report, Luna dated Hill for 2 years.  Luna claims Hill assaulted her and left bruises on her legs and then tried to choke her.  It's interesting -- Luna's complaint to cops was lodged 1 month after the alleged incident.

The report says Luna was uncertain as to whether she'll press charges.

11:27 AM PDT -- A rep for the Lakers tells TMZ ... "We are aware of the media reports alleging an incident involving Jordan Hill from two months ago when he was a member of the Houston Rockets."

"We do not have any details regarding these reports and therefore, as well as due to the personal and legal aspects, it would not be appropriate for us to comment."

big man Jordan Hill has just been charged with felony assault for allegedly choking a family member during an altercation in Texas earlier this year ... TMZ has learned.

The charge was filed by the Harris County District Attorney in Houston. It's unclear whom 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. 

Multiple attempts to reach a rep for Hill were unsuccessful.

Wait, it happened in February, but now they're pressing charges?? Sounds like someone is desperate for some cash and attention now that Jordan Hill is somewhat relevant. Charges will be dropped once they settle, nothing new to see here.

Yes I agree somebody wants some cash out of this. Welcome to LA where everyone is always watching. Once you move to LA your life is no longer private everything you do is public

Can't blame him. Living in Texas will make you want to choke somebody.

Family violence is the hidden shame that blows up from the idiots in the family and the idiot inablers.

On twitter all he talks about is his family and daughter, I don't believe this. Sounds like someone disgruntled that wants money now that he's a Laker. I don't believe someone who talks about family and how much he loves his daughter, as much as he does, would choke out a family member. Probably a disgruntled bitter broad, my bet.

Take a look at the bitch who accused him of it's twitter page Darlene Deluna, she claims she'S "allergic to broke" and her location is "at the bank". Hmmm TELLS YOU EVERYTHING ABOUT HER RIGHT THERE. Great timing to press charges now that your ex is a Laker and making moves. Nothing worse than a bitter bitch out for revenge.

It's called Strangulation now and not choking. This is a very serious crime and is often a lethality predictor for Domestic Violence relationships.
