Caron Butler’s recent account of the infamous incident in the Wizards locker room in 2009 involving Jarvaris Crittenton and Gilbert Arenas and one-to-five guns continues to make waves. The Washington Post ran an excerpt from his new book that provoked Arenas to write an rambling Instagram rebuttal to Butler, which he promptly deleted.
By Arenas’ telling, he wasn’t involved in the boo-ray game that incited Crittenton pulling a gun on him. He, once again, took to Instagram this morning and, once again, deleted the post about an hour after publication. Below is the full text and a screenshot of the post, where Arenas calls Butler a snitch, mentions that JaVale McGee and Crittenton ordered room service through his room every night on the road, and asks Butler for a signed copy of his new book:
