If the Gilbert Arenas gun story wasn't weird before, it surely is now. Last week, news broke that Wizards and the NBA were investigating whether Arenas's storing of a couple firearms in his locker at the Verizon Center violated league rules. Arenas claimed he moved his guns from his home to the locker room because after the birth of his daughter, he decided he didn't want his kids to be around firearms.
That claim will now be called into question as the New York Post and Yahoo! Sports independently report that Arenas was allegedly involved in a standoff with teammate Javaris Crittenton on December 21. The District of Columbia police and the U.S. Attorney's Office are now involved, according to Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Post's Peter Vescey and David K. Li, citing one named source, report that Crittenton confronted Arenas about an unpaid gambling debt, leading Arenas to draw a weapon. Crittenton then drew a weapon of his own.
