Lakers’ Barnes booked on domestic violence charge

The Associated Press

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

Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Tim Curran says deputies arrested Barnes after responding to what was termed an incomplete 911 call from a home around 4:16 p.m. Wednesday.

Deputies say both Barnes and the woman had visible injuries, but took Barnes into custody after determining he had been the primary aggressor.

The name of the woman was not released, but she was described by authorities 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.
