INDIANAPOLIS - Former NBA No.1 draft pick Greg Oden is out of jail following his arrest on battery charges for allegedly punching his ex-girlfriend in the face.
Oden was released from custody Thursday evening. Online Marion County Jail records show Oden was released on a $10,000 bond.
The 26-year-old Oden faces two preliminary misdemeanor battery counts after the incident Thursday morning at his mother's suburban home in Lawrence.
A police report says officers were called to the home at around 3:30 a.m. and found a woman on a sofa with a swollen, bloody face. A friend of the woman told officers that Oden had "punched her in the face."
A judge granted prosecutors 72 hours to determine what, if any, formal charges would be filed.
Oden's agent, Michael Conley Sr., directed all questions to Oden's attorney, James Bell. In a statement, Bell said: "It would be inappropriate to comment at such an early stage of this case. The court will schedule a hearing and we will allow that process to play out."
Oden's initial hearing has been set for Aug. 11.
