Former Buckeye and NBA Playe Greg Oden was arrested this morning after an incident at the 200 block of Maple Bluff Place, in Lawrence Indiana. Officers arrived on the scene to find the victim crying and laying across a bed holding her face. A witness that was described as the victim’s best friend told Police that Oden hit the victim. Initially the victim was uncooperative with police but the witness was quoted saying,
“There isn’t that much love in the world. You need to tell that he punched you in the face.”
According to the report Police “observed blood, swelling to the nose, lacerations to the forehead and nose area of the victim’s face”. Oden was reportedly “calm, apologetic and cooperative”. Oden told police that he and the victim had been together approximately two years but broke up two months ago.
A Marion County Jail van drove Oden to the arrestee processing center. He faces a preliminary charge of battery.
