First of all, hope the victim is said to be okay and nothing serious happened to her.
It’s unclear if Bridges’ legal status will affect his upcoming contract situation, but it’s clear the allegations and allegations are quite serious and the timing couldn’t have been worse. Certainly the teams that may have considered a large table of offers may think twice about doing so due to his alleged conduct.
