Former Thunder guard DeAndre Liggins turned himself into the Oklahoma City jail Friday morning on charges in an assault case, according to News9.

Liggins is charged with seven felony counts in a domestic violence incident involving his girlfriend. In August, the woman called police and said Liggins had attacked her in front of their 2-year-old son. Liggins was arrested on Aug. 31 on charges that included domestic assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, kidnapping, domestic abuse in the presence of a minor child, and violating a VPO. He was released on bond.
