Barnes’ Fiance Says Domestic Accusation Is False

The fiance of Los Angeles Lakers player Matt Barnes says a domestic violence accusation against him is false, and he has never physically abused her or her family.

Gloria Govan made the comments in a statement issued Thursday.

Barnes was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of domestic violence after deputies responded to a disconnected 911.

Sacramento County sheriff’s spokesman Tim Curran says when deputies went to the home that Barnes shares with Govan late Wednesday afternoon they found her with visible injuries. Curran says Barnes was arrested after deputies determined he was the primary aggressor.

Barnes, released after posting a $50,000 bond, is scheduled to be arraigned Sept. 13.
