After the news broke this morning that analyst Matthew Barnaby had been arrested for a DWI in Clarence, N.Y., an ESPN spokesman informed us that Bristol was "looking into the situation." We just received word that Barnaby's been fired. From ESPN's shit-handling department: "We spoke with Matthew and informed him that we terminated his contract, effective immediately."
Barnaby was pulled over on the Dana Marie Parkway just after 3 a.m. this morning while attempting to operate a Porsche Cayenne that only had three wheels. The arrest came just seven months after he faced five criminal charges in a domestic dispute case with his ex-wife. Consider this a reminder, kids and SportsCenter aspirants: Don't drive drunk, and do attempt to drive with all four wheels. It's much easier that way.
Update: The Buffalo News reports that after today's arrest, Barnaby could also be deported back to his native Canada.
