Matt Barnes is always going to be in the middle of a scuffle and last night was the latest example. The Kings forward is now wanted by NYPD for questioning after he allegedly choked a woman inside a nightclub early Monday morning.
The police responded to a call to Avenue Nightclub, claiming that a man (Matt Barnes) was assaulting a woman and another man. The alleged story goes that Barnes choked a woman during an argument and two others tried to break it up and DeMarcus Cousins punched one of them.
Barnes and Cousins was caught outside the club in what will surely be used as some type of evidence, Cousins can clearly be heard saying
“This ni*** was trying to choke Matt, I hit him with a haymaker.”
This is another example of why athletes so always travel with some type of security. Barnes probably heard some of the “Derek Fisher” chants that he heard during the Kings-Knicks game earlier.
