    LA Lakers Matt Barnes booked on Domestic violence charges

    From yahoo.com:

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Los Angeles Lakers forward Matt Barnes has been arrested on suspicion of domestic violence, Sacramento County authorities said Wednesday.

    Deputies arrested Barnes after responding to what was termed an incomplete 911 call from a residence around 4:16 p.m., according to sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Tim Curran.

    Deputies found Barnes and a woman both with visible injuries, but took Barnes into custody after determining he had been the primary aggressor, said Curran.

    The name of the woman was not released, but she was described as "a woman who lived with him and with whom he had a dating relationship."

    Barnes was booked into the Sacramento County Jail on suspicion of domestic violence and maliciously obstructing the use of a telephone line.

    He posted a $50,000 bond and was released. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Sept. 13, according to authorities.

    Barnes, 30, signed a two-year contract worth $3.6 million with the Lakers in July as a free agent.

    A UCLA product, he started 58 games last season for Orlando before signing with the Lakers.

    The well-traveled swingman had played for the Sacramento Kings from October 2004 to February 2005 before being traded, along with Chris Webber and Michael Bradley, to the Philadelphia 76ers.

    I didn't know that Matt Barnes is from Sacramento. Sacramento is almost my home town.
        Let's be careful about throwing stones. We don't know the details, and it's none of our business anyway.

    I know that LA wanted to toughen up their "soft" reputation. I didn't think that it meant that they were going to pick up guys that were only tough with women!

    First of all, I disagree with your assertion that  "it's none of our business." Matt Barnes is a professional athlete. Which means he is paid an obscene amount of money to put a ball through a hole. He is also probably afforded preferential treatment on a regular basis by many, including law enforcement. However, it is a double edged sword. Unless he is a complete imbecile, he realizes that as an athlete/celebrity a certain amount of privacy has been lost. That is an assumption that all celebrities must make- because it is true. Knowing this, he still chose to engage in this despicable conduct. As far as I'm concerned, it is my business. And frankly, I wouldn't care if it were Joe Blow down the street or a celebrity. Domestic abuse should be public business. Secrecy is one of the biggest enabling components of this epidemic.

    Secondly, why should I withold judgement? Maybe I don't know the whole story. But let's just say I believe the cops. Because I do. When the police arrived, both parties were injured. As far as I'm concerned that's enough.

    I couldn't care less who started it. If it was her,then he should have left. Hell, run away if you have to. That's what a man does. The fact that she was injured is all I need to know that Barnes isn't much of a man.

    And if somebody reading this has "snapped" and hit their gf or wife ar some point and I've offended you with my generalizations, too bad. You don't just slip and hit your girlfriend. It doesn't happen. Wife beaters are like child molesters. Either you are or you aren't.
