Washington Wizards star Gilbert Arenas has been charged with felony gun possession and is expected to plead to the charge before a DC superior court judge Friday afternoon. From ESPN
Arenas, who last week was suspended indefinitely without pay by NBA commissioner David Stern, was charged with carrying a pistol without a license outside a home or business.
The charges were filed in D.C. Superior Court in an "information," a document that generally signals a plea deal. The charge came directly from prosecutors and not in the form of an indictment.
"We are aware of the charge filed against Gilbert Arenas today and will continue to follow the ongoing legal process very carefully," the Wizards said in a statement issued Thursday. "We will also continue to cooperate fully with the proper authorities and the NBA."
So, Gilly the Kid's fun n' gun days have been cut short for the time being. As the legal wheels turn, The Buzz is still curious about Javaris Crittendon's role in this little dust up. Something isn't quite adding up.
