Oden Charged With Battery
(Indianapolis, IN) -- Former NBA top draft pick Greg Oden is facing charges of battery for allegedly punching his ex-girlfriend in the face during an argument last week. The 26-year-old center was charged Monday with several counts, including felony battery resulting in serious bodily injury. The Portland Trail Blazers took Oden first overall in 2007, but his career has been derailed by knee problems. He played last season for the Miami Heat and is now an unsigned free agent.
