Yesterday, we reported that Matt Barnes was arrested on domestic abuse charges on Wednesday in Sacramento County, CA. Today, the Sacramento Bee reports that Matt Barnes’s fiancee claims that no domestic abuse occured.
Laura M. Wright, a public relations executive, who says she represents both Barnes and his fiancee, released this statement on behalf of Govan:
“Any accusation of domestic violence are false. My fiancé, Matt Barnes, has never physically abused me or my family.”
Update (by Jay): This whole situation is freaking weird. One day Barnes’ fiancee is telling police that Barnes was the primary aggressor, both parties had “visible injuries,” and 911 dispatchers could only hear the sound of a struggle. The next, Barnes “has never physically abused me or my family.” I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to think Barnes was Chuck Finley’d.
