Suspended NBA Star Gilbert Arenas Dodges Bullet: Avoids Jail But Will Serve 30 Days in Halfway House on Gun Charge

WASHINGTON — Suspended NBA Washington Wizards star Gilbert Arenas dodged the bullet Friday during sentencing. He won’t be going to jail, but he will have to spend 30 days in a halfway house and two years on probation, the Associated Press reported.

The D.C. U.S. Attorney’s Office had recommended a 3 month jail sentence, saying Arenas was not remorseful and was less than candid about bringing four guns to the locker room at the Verizon Center and getting into a confrontation with a teammate Javaris Crittenon.

After getting in a gambling dispute with Crittenton, he brought the guns to the Verizon Center and put them in front of Crittenton’s locker with a note that said to pick one.

D.C. Superior Court Judge Robert Morin also ordered Arenas to perform 400 hours of community service and contribute $5,000 to a victims of violence fund, CNN reported.
