Matt Barnes Suspended By NBA

News

/ October 31, 2012

Matt Barnes, L.A. Clippers forward and (for the reality TV fiends) husband to Gloria Govan, will be sitting out the team’s season opener tonight (Oct. 31) thanks to some trouble he got in back in July.

In the summer, Barnes was arrested for driving on a suspended license and resisting arrest. We see now why the basketball star tried to fight his arrest–the suspended license charge turned out to be inaccurate, as police later found his license was valid.

The 6’7″athlete took to Twitter to call the NBA’s slap-on-the-hand punishment a joke and wish his teammates good luck as they battle the Memphis Grizzlies.
