Police in the west metro early Thursday arrested Minnesota Timberwolves player Dante Cunningham on suspicion of domestic assault.

Cunningham, 26, was apprehended by police in Medina and booked into the Hennepin County jail shortly after 6 a.m., according to jail records.

He is being held without bail pending charges.

Cunningham and the Wolves played Wednesday night at Target Center, defeating the Memphis Grizzlies. He will not travel with the team Thursday afternoon to Miami, where Minnesota plays Friday vs. the Heat, Wolves management said in a statement.

As for whether Cunningham will be in the lineup in Miami, team spokesman Brad Ruiter said, “We are not commenting one way or another in the statement about his playing status.”

Police arrived at Cunningham’s residence on Medina Road about 4 a.m. and met with a woman who also lives there who had “marks of a physical domestic [altercation]” on her body,” said Police Chief Ed Belland. The woman did not require medical treatment, the chief added.

Cunningham had left the $1.1 million home before police arrived but soon returned and “was subsequently arrested and taken into custody without incident,” Belland said.

The chief said he expects to forward the case to the county attorney’s office for charging by Thursday afternoon.
