Royce White under investigation for alleged domestic violence incident

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

No charges have been filed thus far against White for an incident that happened in June.

Philadelphia 76ers forward Royce White is allegedly involved in a domestic violence investigation, though no charges have been filed, according to TMZ.

The incident allegedly occurred in late June between White and then-girlfriend Tania Mehra at White's Houston-area home. Original records reportedly show that 911 was called to report a laceration above Mehra's eye, but  she claimed the injury was from an "accidental fall" at the time.

Mehra changed her story last week, filing an incident report stating that she lied on the night of the alleged incident and that White was to blame for the injury. Mehra claims White assaulted her after she became angry with him for making advances toward her friend. She allegedly lied initially to police because she wanted to protect White's NBA career.

White was selected 16th by the Houston Rockets in the 2012 NBA Draft. He didn't play a single NBA game in his rookie season due to ongoing mental health issues, however, and he was traded to the Sixers in July.
