Timberwolves' Cunningham turned himself in for alleged terroristic threats

Posted: Updated:
MEDINA, Minn. (KMSP) -

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Dante Cunningham turned himself in to police after allegedly making terroristic threats a few days after he was charged with felony domestic assault.

Medina police said an officer responded to a home on Medina Road at 3:08 a.m. Sunday in connection with a dispute Cunningham, 26, had with his girlfriend that resulted in his arrest Thursday. On Sunday, the victim reported receiving threatening messages from Cunningham which violate an order for protection.

Cunningham was contacted and agreed to turn himself in. He was taken into custody in Minneapolis at 11:45 a.m. without incident and turned over his cell phone and computer to investigators.

"We reiterate that the Minnesota Timberwolves do not condone the behavior described in the accusations. We continue to wait for the legal process to run its course and will have further comment when appropriate," the team said in a statement.

Cunningham started in Saturday night's loss against the Orlando Magic and tallied 12 points in 34 minutes after missing a win over the Miami Heat following his first arrest.

He is averaging 6.0 points and 4.0 rebounds and will be an unrestricted free agent after this season. Cunningham earned $2.1 million this season after the Timberwolves exercised the team option on his contract.
