Greg Oden, a player for the Miami Heat, was arrested early this morning for the battery of his ex-girlfriend. Police arrived to find the victim covering her face and uncooperative with the officers. A woman, described as the victim’s friend, explained to police that her ex-boyfriend, Greg Oden, punched her in the face. The victim was shown to have lacerations on her face and a bloody nose. Officers witnessed blood in various parts of the home, which is owned by Greg Oden’s mother.

Oden was quiet and cooperated with police when arrested. It was reported that the two had dated for two years, but broken up prior to the altercation. The hearing for the charge of battery is set today, and a 72-hour continuance could be placed before deciding on to file any charges.
