Lakers’ Matt Barnes Arrested On Domestic Charge

SACRAMENTO (CBS 2) — Officials in the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department have announced the arrest of Los Angeles Lakers Matt Kelly Barnes on domestic violence charges.

Barnes, 30, and the woman he lives with both had “visible injuries” according to officials.

Police responded to an incomplete 911 call from the residence at 4:16 p.m. Wednesday.

During their investigation, police determined the woman who lives at the residence — who has a dating relationship with Barnes — was physically prevented from completing the call.

Cops decided he was the physical aggressor and took him into custody.

Barnes was booked on felony domestic violence charges as well as maliciously obstructing the use of a phone line.

He posted a $50,000 bond just after 9:35, say officials.

Barnes is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday.
