Cavaliers star Craig Ehlo was arrested Thursday on charges of domestic violence and reckless burning during a domestic dispute, according to a report by the Spokesman Review:
Basketball standout Craig Ehlo, who spent 14 years in the NBA and last month resigned an assistant coaching position at Eastern Washington University, was arrested early Thursday on charges including domestic violence after firefighters found family members holding him down near a pile of burning clothes outside his rural Spokane home.
Spokane County sheriff's deputies arrested Ehlo, 51, on the felony charge of first-degree reckless burning and a separate charge of domestic violence, according to the Sheriff's Office. He was booked into Spokane County Jail shortly after 7:30 a.m. under his given first name, Joel.
Ehlo played for the Cavs, Hawks, Rockets and Sonics in his career, and is most know as the defender Michael Jordan hit "The Shot" over in the 1989 playoffs.
