The New York City Police Department would like to speak with Sacramento Kings forward Matt Barnes after he allegedly choked a woman and punched a few guys attempting to break up the incident inside a nightclub.

According to TMZ Sports, the Kings were in New York Sunday to take on the Knicks. After the game, Barnes and Kings teammate Demarcus Cousins were partying at Avenue nightclub in Manhattan when Barnes got into an argument with a female patron early Monday morning. Barnes allegedly began choking the woman, and when two men tried to break up the incident, he allegedly punched both men.

TMZ Sports captured video of Barnes and Cousins leaving the nightclub, and Cousins can clearly be heard saying, "Matt hit the [s—t] out this [n—ga]!"


Cops were called to the club, but Barnes and Cousins had left before they arrived.
