After his arrest and not-guilty plea to charges stemming from a "domestic incident," an agent for ESPN hockey analyst Matthew Barnaby issued a statement on behalf of his client. Here it is:
"The past few months have been difficult on our entire family, as my wife and I decided to seperate and divorce. Last evening, there was an unfortunate disagreement between us regarding a family matter. There was never any physical violence or threat of physical violence involved. I would like to ask that everyone respect our privacy during this difficult time, and hope that this will be resolved quickly and amicably."
