LA Lakers: No Charges To Be Filed Against Forward Matt Barnes
Great news on the eve of the 2010-2011 NBA season…
Lakers forward Matt Barnes will not face domestic abuse charges from the Sacramento district attorney’s office. Barnes was arrested last month on suspicion of domestic abuse and violence in Sacramento after an alleged altercation with his fiancee.
Police officers who responded to a 911 call on Sept. 8 said there was evidence of an altercation, but Barnes’ fiancée later disputed the charges.
The Lakers signed Barnes to a two year contract during the offseason. The Lakers start the season on Tuesday night versus the Houston Rockets.
