NBA: Ex-Cavaliers G Craig Ehlo Arrested on Domestic Violence Charge

Aug 1 2013, 10:52pm CDT | by

Former Cleveland Cavaliers guard Craig Ehlo was arrested on Thursday on a domestic violence charge.

Former Cleveland Cavaliers guard Craig Ehlo was arrested on Thursday in Spokane, Was. 

Thomas Clouse of the Spokane Spokesman-Review writes firefighters witnessed Ehlo being held down by his family members near a pile of his burning clothes prior to the arrest. The Spokane Sheriff's Office said he was subsequently charged with first-degree reckless burning and domestic violence. 

According to Sheriff's spokesman Deputy Craig Chamberlain, firefighters were called to the scene at the 3300 block of East 77th Avenue after a fire allegedly broke out at around 1 a.m. PT on August 1. He then described the situation when they arrived.

"As (deputies) approached, they saw two males holding down another male on the ground, who was Craig.

"Through the investigation, the deputies learned that Craig had a domestic dispute. He had been arguing with his wife earlier in the evening.

Chamberlain said family members "saw Craig piling up clothes next to the garage and he lit them on fire" after they heard some strange noises coming from that part of the house. 

Yahoo! Sports' Dan Devine says the charge against Ehlo counts as a Class C felony in Washington State which carries a maximum of five years in prison, a $10,000 fine, or both.

Devine also cites a December 2009 Cleveland Magazine featured story saying Ehlo and his wife had been married for 24 years and have three children. 

The 51-year-old Ehlo's arrest comes less than a month after he resigned as head basketball coach of the Eastern Washington Eagles on July 11. Prior to that, he had stints as a television analyst for the Seattle SuperSonics and Gonzaga Bulldogs. 

He enjoyed a 14-year NBA career, seeing action for the Houston Rockets, Cleveland Cavaliers, Atlanta Hawks and Seattle SuperSonics. He averaged 8.6 points per game while shooting 36.9 percent from the three-point area. 

Ehlo, who will be forever remembered by NBA fans for defending Michael Jordan when he shot the famous playoff buzzer-beater in May 1989, says he doesn't mind.

"I really don't mind.

"My teammates were great, we had good teams, and the city (Cleveland) loved us."
