It’s hard being a NBA player especially when pulled over for an outstanding misdemeanor traffic violation. What is a bad boy such as Matt Barnes to do??
The answer is pretty obvious, threaten — allegedly — a police officer via SI.
Los Angeles Lakers forward Matt Barnes has been arrested on an outstanding misdemeanor traffic warrant and for investigation of threatening a police officer.
Manhattan Beach police Lt. Steve Tobias said Barnes was arrested late Monday as he was walking on a busy thoroughfare in the city about 20 miles southwest of downtown Los Angeles. Bail was set at $51,000.
Tobias said Barnes wasn’t cooperative when he was stopped by police and was going to be booked for allegedly threatening the officer, which is a felony.
