Player’s texts at ‘terroristic level’

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Dante Cunningham remained in custody on Monday following an initial court appearance for domestic assault charges, with the possibility that more charges could be coming from a second arrest over the weekend.

Cunningham was arrested twice in three days last week after alleged incidents with the woman he had been living with for the previous eight months.

Cunningham was charged Friday with felony domestic assault for allegedly choking the woman.

Police said they received a call from the woman in the early morning hours on Sunday saying that Cunningham had violated a protection order by sending threatening text messages that “rose to a terroristic level.”

Bail was set at $150,000 pending any charges.

• Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.

The 21-year-old, who is in his second season with the Raptors, is averaging 11 points and 8.6 rebounds a game.
