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.

There are alot of dumb asses out here writing stupid articles such as this bitch (Shannon Steward) What is your point of saying Kobe the Rapes just let that **** go its in the past. Woman are just looking to get paid thats all. Money is all what they have in there mind. Why dont u look at this dude name also Jordan Hill and he live in Florida like this bitch Luna. This dude is white and you look at his mugshot looks like he might be the guy that try to chock her........

First of all, he's a role player, not a star. Second of all, why wait a month after the alleged incident to file a report? That's suspicious. Finally, he's been playing very well and contributing A LOT. Maybe since he's now on the Lakers, a relevant team, this chick wants to cash in.

Look, whether he did this or not...the fact remains he probably saw this coming...eventually. No one finds themselves in this position unless they're riding the train until it goes off the tracks. Tough shìt, dude. You asked for it!

I too wonder what it is with all of the anger in NBA players.I guess you can take the player out of the ghetto,but you can't take the ghetto out of the player.
