Gilbert Arenas Puts Away The Arms & Bares His Chest/Suspension Update

In case you missed the latest happenings on Gilbert Arenas’ woes and new Peta Ad, NBA commissioner David Stern suspended Arenas indefinitely without pay.  Arenas was recently photographed on Tuesday pointing his index fingers in the form of guns at teammates during a pre-game.  Not a good thing  to do considering he was already under investigation by authorities for bring guns into the locker room.

David Stern, felt that Arenas’ behavior made him “not currently fit to take the court.”  Stern warned Arenas that his actions will “ultimately result in a substantial suspension, and perhaps worse.”

Originally Arenas said that he brought the four guns to the Verizon Center because he wanted to keep his home safe after his daughter was born.  But two NBA officials told The Associated Press that the incident was about a dispute over card-playing gambling debts involving Arenas and Crittenton which ended in the pulling of the guns.

Arenas said he took out the unloaded guns from his locker in a “misguided effort to play a joke” on a teammate.  He added:

“Joke or not, I now recognize that what I did was a mistake and was wrong,” Arenas said. “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 unloaded.”

So to conclude this story for now guns suck.  Take it from Gilbert Arenas.
