NBA star Miles Bridges filed a restraining order against Mychelle Johnson, the woman who accused him of domestic violence.

Bridges has alleged he is being harassed by Johnson, despite a June 27 dispute between them that turned physical and ultimately led to his arrest, according to TMZ. Bridges accepted a plea deal in this matter, but claims Johnson continued to show up at his residence and other places where he was staying. He alleges that she even showed up unannounced and uninvited just two days after the plea deal, TMZ reported.

Bridges claims Johnson entered the side gate of his rented Airbnb in Los Angeles on Oct. 12 with their two kids in tow. He said he ran inside in an effort to avoid her, due to the fact that there was a protective order in place and he had to abide by the terms of his plea deal, according to TMZ.

The NBA star alleges that the door would not lock and he had to physically hold it shut against Johnson’s efforts to break in. He claims Johnson swung a hose nozzle into the home to try gaining entry, but wasn’t able to get through. Bridges said Johnson then proceeded to steal his dog on her way out with their children, according to TMZ.

Bridges also alleged that Johnson followed him and his friends home from a hookah lounge in Los Angeles on Oct. 31 at 2:30 am. The NBA star claims that Johnson brought their children and remained in the car on his driveway, demanding that he come out to talk. Once again, he said he remained inside in compliance with his court restrictions, according to TMZ. (RELATED: REPORT: Former NBA Star Eric Bledsoe Arrested For Domestic Violence)

Friends and bodyguards were reportedly unable to convince Johnson to move, and she remained in the driveway for six hours.

Bridges is asking the court to issue a restraining order to keep her at least 100 yards away from him at all times. He is also seeking court-ordered documents to prevent her from contacting him or coming near his dog, according to TMZ.
