You remember Craig Ehlo as the Cavalier player Michael Jordan nailed “The Shot” over in the 1989 NBA playoffs.
Ehlo’s got more serious issues in his life than that now — he has been arrested in Washington on a domestic violence charge. The Spokesman-Review out of Spokane, Wash., has the story.
Spokane County sheriff’s deputies arrested Ehlo, 51, on charges of first-degree reckless burning, domestic violence, according to the sheriff’s office. He was booked into Spokane county jail at 7:36 a.m. The charge is a Class C felony.
Ehlo had been the coach at Eastern Washington University but resigned in July. The Washington State alum lived in the area and had also done some television color commentating for the Sonics when Seattle had a team, and for Gonzaga broadcasts.
Ehlo had a 14-year NBA career where he was a solid swingman. He shot 36.9 percent from three for his career and averaged 8.6 points a game.
But what he’s remembered for mostly is the guy in this highlight.
