Houston Rockets guard Kevin Porter Jr. was arrested in New York City on Monday for allegedly strangling his girlfriend, former WNBA baller Kysre Gondrezick.
According to police sources, Kysre locked Kevin out of their room at the Millennium Hilton because he came back early Monday morning after a night out on the town.
Once hotel security helped Kevin Porter Jr. get into the room, he allegedly beat up Kysre Gondrezick.
Kysre was treated for a cut on the right side of her face and neck pain.
