First Tollie, then the Mack & Manco people, and now Dante Cunningham?!

One of my all-time favorite Villanova basketball players, Cunningham was arrested early this morning under the suspicion of domestic abuse:

At 4:01 a.m. Thursday, Medina police received a call of a physical domestic altercation at Cunningham’s residence in the 400 block of Medina Road, said Ed Belland, director of public safety for Medina.

An unidentified female displayed signs of an altercation, but no medical care was needed, Belland said. Belland declined to detail the signs or if children were present.

“The suspect (Cunningham) left the scene, but the suspect returned and was arrested without incident,” Belland said.

Belland said Cunningham returned within about 15 minutes and did not risk further possible charges for leaving the scene.

The Timberwolves put out a press release:

“We are aware of the matter involving Dante Cunningham and are in the process of gathering more information. Dante will not be traveling with the team to Miami this afternoon. The Minnesota Timberwolves organization takes the matter very seriously and does not condone the type of behavior that is associated with this situation. However, we need to let the legal process run its course, and will have further comment at the appropriate time.”

And you wonder why I’m a cynic. Everything that was ever sacred to me becomes ruined. I’m now seriously worried that the Ninja Turtles will be brought up on racketeering charges. Poor Splinter, he knew nothing!
