This week started off poorly for NBA player Matt Barnes. First, his team (Sacramento Kings) took an L to the New York Knicks last night. Second, he’s now wanted by the police over an alleged physical altercation with a woman at a nightclub.
According to TMZ, Barnes reportedly choked a woman during an argument and when two of her friends tried to intervene he punched both of them. He fled the scene before the cops arrived and is now wanted for questioning by the NYPD. A video surfaced of the NBA player and teammate DeMarcus Cousins post-club discussing the altercation. In the video, Cousins is clearly heard saying, “Matt hit the s*** out this ni***!” Watch the video below.
As more information about the incident comes to light we will keep you updated here.
Before the alleged incident at the NYC club, Barnes was involved in a hilarious situation with petty Knicks fans at Madison Square Garden. The Knickerbockers faithful had no chill when they chanted “Derek Fisher” at Barnes during the game on Sunday. If you need a late pass to be in on the joke, Fisher is now dating Gloria Govan, Barnes’ ex.
