Sacramento Kings forward Matt Barnes is often more noteworthy for his antics, both on the court and off the court, than his actual play.
His behavior in the past has ranged from merely silly to genuinely harmful, like the incident in which he drove 90 miles to threaten Derek Fisher at his ex’s house.
Now, another situation is unfolding that could mean serious legal trouble for the NBA veteran.
Sacramento Kings forward Matt Barnes is reportedly wanted for questioning after allegedly choking a woman and punching two people in a New York City nightclub Monday morning.
“According to TMZ Sports, Barnes allegedly choked an unnamed woman during an argument and then hit two people who tried to break up the altercation. He was not at the scene when police arrived. ‘At least’ one other Kings player was allegedly with Barnes at the time but was also gone before officers could question him.”

Barnes has a long history of suspensions from the NBA, and if this incident is as bad as it sounds, it will definitely lead to the biggest suspension he has ever received, even if jail time doesn’t come into play.
