The latest trend of athletes being attacked by their wifes/partners appears to not be limited to locked out NFL players. Per mlive.com (Michigan local news) Kenya Bell, wife of Golden State Warriors guard Charlie Bell, was arrested and charged with assault Sunday after allegedly attacking her husband with a box cutter. Here are some details:
The Prosecutor’s office has charged Kenya Bell, former Miss Michigan USA, with assaulting her husband, basketball star Charlie Bell, with a box cutter on Sunday, said Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton.
The assault occurred inside Charile Bell’s home in Grand Blanc Township in the presence of two children, Leyton said.
Leyton declined to release any more details on the incident.
“It’s a tragic situation,” he said. “They’re entitled to some privacy.”
Charlie Bell is from Flint, Michigan and was a member of Michigan State’s 2000 National Championship team and has spent seven seasons in the NBA as a member of the Suns, Mavericks and Milwaukee Brewers before being traded to the Warriors in the off-season. Kenya Bell is a former 2001 Miss Michigan USA and has an MBA in Engineering from MSU. Hopefully Charlie was not severely injured and makes a full recovery and things somehow work out positively for them and their two children.
