Charlotte Hornets player Miles Bridges might be in some serious hot water with the league after his actions Wednesday night.
During a blowout 132-103 loss in the play-in game against the Atlanta Hawks, Bridges was ejected after arguing a goaltending call. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Things only got worse from there. As he was leaving the court, he hit a little girl in the stands with his mouth guard. Watch the unbelievably stupid decision below.

You can’t run around throwing your mouth guard at fans and expect to not get punished.
Miles Bridges popped that little girl in the head with his mouthpiece & she didn’t even flinch. Boss.

Now, do I think he intended to hit the little girl? No, I think he meant to hit the fan heckling him. You’d have to be next level stupid to intentionally hit a child with your mouth guard, and I don’t think that was his intention.
However, it doesn’t matter. He threw it, it hit the little girl and he’s going to have to pay the price. Actions have consequences and he’s going to find out hitting a child with his mouth guard isn’t acceptable.
