Gilbert Arenas Gun Standoff: Caught on Tape?

by at . Comments

Surveillance cameras may have caught the Christmas Eve standoff in which basketball star Gilbert Arenas pulled a gun on his teammate, Javaris Crittenton.

The Washington Wizards have told District of Columbia police that they have locker room surveillance video but are having trouble downloading the footage.

Computer technicians are assisting the organization with the matter today.

If you think the video problems are a ruse so the Wizards can protect their star, think again. A source says the team is almost "over cooperative" with cops.

A TMZ source says it's "almost as if they want Arenas to go down," and "there is a better than 50/50 chance the U.S. Attorney will issue a felony warrant."

The NBA has suspended Arenas indefinitely.

AGENT ZERO BRAIN CELLS: What the heck was Gilbert Arenas thinking?

He has no license for the guns, and if he is charged with a felony, the Wizards could cite the morals clause in Arenas' $111 million contract and void it.

As for what caused the standoff, a law enforcement says it was all over a card game known as Bourré. Arenas allegedly owed Crittenton some money.

Crittenton apparently threatened Arenas to make good on his debt. Two days later, Arenas laid out his guns as a prank, telling him to collect the debt.

Instead of diffusing the tension, Crittenton became enraged and both NBA players ended up drawing on each other ... in the locker room. Astounding.
