First Matt Barnes was arguing with the chickens from VH1’s Basketball Housewives and then got in trouble for smacking up a coach… Guess he was just practicing for the real day!!! Matt Barnes was arrested in Sacramento County for laying hands on his “live in”
Los Angeles Lakers player Matt Barnes was arrested and booked into Sacramento County Main Jail on Wednesday night on a felony domestic violence charge.
Sacramento County Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Tim Curran said deputies responded to an incomplete 911 call from the 8100 block of Sunset Avenue at about 4:15 p.m., where they encountered Barnes and a woman “who lived with him and with whom he had a dating relationship.”
After speaking to Barnes and the woman, deputies determined that the two had been in a physical confrontation and Barnes had prevented the woman from talking to 911 operators. Curran said dispatchers heard the sound of a struggle in the background on the brief open line until it was disconnected.
Both parties had visible injuries but Barnes was determined to be the primary aggressor, Curran said.
Barnes is also charged with maliciously obstructing the use of a telephone line, Curran said. He posted a $50,000 bond and was released shortly before 9:40 p.m.
He is scheduled to appear in court Monday.
Now, we do know that Matt Barnes and Gloria Govan called off the wedding but do you think they were still living together??? Pretty sure the rest of this story will be leaking soon so, we can get all the scrappin’ details.
By the way, Whomever she is… She f*cked his neck all the way up!!!
Matt has since released a couple of quotes about the incident:
“U know any domestic violence situation 9 outa 10 times the man gets arrested,” Barnes wrote in a text message to Bryan May of News10, according to a report on the station’s website. “That’s the case here I was the victim but still got arrested. No matter what I say people are gonna think what they want…”
He also tweeted about the incident:
SMH… So now you’re the victim Matt?
