As if taking almost 20 shots a game wasn’t enough, Gilbert Arenas has now officially proven to everyone that he is a ‘gunner’; he is under investigation for holding a firearm in the Washington Wizards locker room.
Via CSN Washington:
“The Washington Wizards have learned that Gilbert Arenas stored firearms in a locked container in his locker, unloaded and without ammunition. The Wizards organization and Arenas promptly notified the local authorities and the NBA and are cooperating fully with law enforcement during its review of this matter and will have no further comment at this time.”
Gilbert had this to say to the Washington Times about the incident:
“It happened like December 10th. Right after my daughter was born. I decided I didn’t want the guns in my house and around the kids anymore, so i took them to my lock box at Verizon Center. Then like a week later, I turned them over to team security and told them to hand them over to the police, because I don’t want them anymore. I wouldn’t have brought them to D.C. had I known the rules. After my daughter was born, I was just like, I don’t need these anymore.”
Personally, I think he probably just wanted to hold a gun to Mike Miller’s head and force him to get a haircut. And you know what? I don’t blame him.
