Gilbert Arenas… meet your new defense attorney… Dave Chappelle. Gil, in his infinite wisdom… is admitting to having guns in the locker room, and flashing them at Javaris Crittenton.
In a statement, Arenas said he brought four unloaded handguns to his
locker to keep them away from his children. He says he mistakenly
thought recent changes in D.C. gun laws made that legal.
Arenas said he took the unloaded guns out of his locker on Dec. 21
"in a misguided effort to play a joke on a teammate." He denied
threatening or assaulting anyone.
Joke or not, I now
recognize that what I did was a mistake and was wrong. I should not
have brought the guns to DC in the first place, and I now realize that
there's no such thing as joking around when it comes to guns — even if
I am very sorry for the effect that my serious lapse in
judgment has had on my team, my teammates, the National Basketball
Association and its fans. I want to apologize to everybody for letting
them down with my conduct, and I promise to do better in the future.
I'm sure the US Attorney's office will let Gilbert go with a "didn't know I couldn't do that" and a "I promise not to do it again." Yeah… that always works
