Completely off topic but, did you see Marion Berry this weekend?

Back on topic, this sounds like some BS, although Gilbert is lucky he didn't get mased for not backing up. I do agree though that the judge will probably throw this one out, especially since Gilbert does a lot for the community.

Re: Gilbert Arenas Arrested

As far as I know, it is not illegal to observe a police officer doing his job (I think there is a distance limit, however). If Gilbert's car was in an acceptable parking space, then the cop has no right to tell Gilbert to leave (and then arrest him for not leaving). It seems like just another case of cops abusing their power.

Re: Gilbert Arenas Arrested

if the guy the cops arrested was drunk and in the middle of the street (blocking traffic) and arenas either joined him there or interfered with their arrest, he was in the wrong, even if it was sticking up for his team mate and wasn't a big deal. It does sound like he did in fact hassle the cops in a very minor way, so i highly doubt it's an abuse of power. Though if the same thing happened 10-20 times, i think very few people would actually be charged and brought in for it or whatnot.

Oddly enough, Yes I did. He and his old lady were eating crabs at Lazy Susan's in Lewes on Saturday night.

Re: Gilbert Arenas Arrested

Arenas speaks out......

He said he never said anything like "I'm a basketball player, you can't arrest me"

Re: Gilbert Arenas Arrested

sounds like a bunch of hot head police officers overstepping their bounds to make an example out of Arenas...

Re: Gilbert Arenas Arrested

yeah, hopefully the charges get dropped and it just goes away. it seems so petty, even if the cops' account was the absolute truth.

Re: Gilbert Arenas Arrested

I never thought Gilbert was the jerk that the media is making him out to be.

Sounds petty to me...nothing really. It'll pass.

Re: Gilbert Arenas Arrested

Arenas was funny in his Post article by Wilbon today. He's said that he never said the alleged "I'm a basketball player" line and that it sounded like Ron Burgundy in Anchorman "I'm kind of a big deal, people know me."
