Cavs’ West accused of violence

Associated Press

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio – The wife of Cleveland Cavaliers guard Delonte West has filed a domestic violence report against her husband.

The report, filed with Cleveland police Sunday, says Kimberly West met with authorities at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, where she had gone to fly to her father’s house in New Jersey.

In the report, she says Delonte West had accused her of cheating on him and that they had an argument in which he grabbed her and took her wedding ring and purse.

Police said Monday the case remains under investigation and that no charges have been filed.

Cavaliers coach Mike Brown says the team is aware of the report and is monitoring the situation.

West has not appeared in any preseason games, and Brown has not decided whether West will be active for the season opener tonight against Boston.

West, who has been treated in the past for bipolar disorder, twice left the team during training camp for personal reasons. He is also facing misdemeanor weapons possession charges stemming from a September arrest in Maryland.
