Jordan Hill Choking Case

Lakers Star Turns Himself In

EXCLUSIVE

L.A. Lakers
star Jordan Hill turned himself in to authorities earlier today -- after allegedly choking out his girlfriend during a nuclear argument in Texas back in February.

Hill showed up to court today in Houston to face the felony domestic violence charge -- and the judge set bond at $5,000. Hill was briefly taken into custody before immediately bonding out.

The judge set no travel restrictions on his bond -- so the case shouldn't affect his playoff run.

But the judge did impose a protective order -- barring Hill from contacting or going anywhere near his ex.

And there's this -- Hill played against Denver last night in L.A. (scoring six points) which means he must have booked it on an airplane soon after the game.

Hill is due back in court on June 8th.

Texas is a California Style Celebrity Court affiliate, so after he pays his attorney to work his magic, he'll walk. But I think I figured out why black women are so mean... you'd have to be when your men our savage and think that women are just a warm place to poke and a punching bag. The only thing that will get these guys attention is if the leagues had a domestic violence clause---you punch a woman, your kids or significant other and you're off the team. Then we can read about them going bankrupt, owing Uncle Sam and the rest.

Proof again that the NBA is mostly fatherless welfare thugs with too much money.

I'm missing the days of passing the ball, defense, and segregation.
