Matt Barnes Arrested For Domestic Violence

Uh oh, the newest Laker I love to hate (Matt Barnes)  was arrested yesterday for domestic violence against the “woman he lives with” (That’s Gloria). Per the Sacramento Bee, details of the arrest are as follows:

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.


Hmmmmm not the BEST way to get your start into Laker Land. Also makes ALLLLLLL the things the couple was saying on Basketball Wives last season look really suspect. I hope both parties are fine and I also hope the blog backlash doesn’t further complicate things. Matt has already taken to his Twitter account to semi address the situation as well as speaking with a Sacramento area news station.
