Report: Matt Barnes Wanted For Allegedly Choking A Woman In A Night Club

According to TMZ and the New York Post, Sacramento Kings forward Matt Barnes is wanted for questioning for allegedly choking a woman in a New York City night club early Monday morning.

TMZ cites law enforcement sources who say Barnes was involved in a physical altercation with multiple people:

Law enforcement sources tell us cops got a 911 call to Avenue Nightclub after midnight, reporting a man assaulting 2 women and another man. We’re told things got physical when Barnes allegedly choked one woman during an argument — and when 2 other people tried to intervene ... he punched both of them.


TMZ also obtained a video that was apparently taken outside of the night club right after the alleged incident. In the video, Barnes is seen with Kings teammate DeMarcus Cousins. At one point, Cousins can be heard shouting, “Hey, the nigga was trying to choke Matt, I hit the shit out this nigga!”

The Kings were in town to play the Knicks on Sunday.
