(TMZ) TMZ has obtained the mug shot for Los Angeles Lakers star Jordan Hill ... taken moments after the basketball player turned himself into authorities in Houston, Texas on Wednesday.
TMZ broke the story ... Hill is accused of choking his girlfriend during a nuclear argument back in February. Hill has denied the allegations.
After Hill was taken into custody, he immediately posted the $5,000 bond and was immediately released. The judge set no travel restrictions on his bond -- so the case shouldn't affect his playoff run.
But the judge did impose a protective order -- barring Hill from contacting or going anywhere near his ex. See the mug shot here.
