The Los Angeles Lakers' newest star may not be shining for too long.
Power Forward Jordan Hill has been charged with felony assault for choking a family member in Texas on February 29.
We're not sure WHO he choked, but it must have been a pret-ty serious attack if they want to put him in the slammer for up to 10 years.
Since the incident occurred while he was still playing for the Houston Rockets, he's due in court Texas court to face the third-degree felony charge.
We hope this guy gets his act together because, unlike the picture above, assault is never a laughing matter.
