Armed Agent Zero Confuses Wizards With Bullets

We interrupt your Christmas caroling for this: Gilbert Arenas is under NBA investigation for stashing firearms in his locker. Apparently, that might violate the league's gun policy. Plus, Washington D.C. owns strict anti-gun laws. What's the excuse?

This isn't Arenas's first brush with gun possession. In 2004, he was suspended for a game for not registering a firearm in California. So what happened this time? Arenas told The Washington Times that the impetus for ridding his home of firearms was the birth of his daughter, around Dec. 10:

I decided I didn't want the guns in my house and around the kids anymore, so i took them to my lock box at Verizon Center. Then like a week later, I turned them over to team security and told them to hand them over to the police, because I don't want them anymore. I wouldn't have brought them to D.C. had I known the rules. After my daughter was born, I was just like, I don't need these anymore.


He's a family man, and isn't that what the holidays are all about? Probably some other things, too, but let's not quibble and just get back to singing Christmas carols.
