Gilbert Arenas Mug Shot Released; Star Suspended For Entire NBA Season

by at . Comments

A man with the nickname of Agent Zero deserves a good mug shot, don't you think? Gilbert Arenas was formally booked on a felony gun charge Tuesday.

The Washington Wizards star pleaded guilty January 15 to one count of carrying a pistol without a license - a felony - and will likely avoid any jail time.

He remains on indefinite suspension, however, and may be at risk of having his $111 million contract with the NBA team voided due to his conviction.

The charges against Arenas stemmed from a locker room standoff with teammate Javaris Crittenton late last year after a prank went horribly awry.

Gilbert Arenas will be sentenced March 26.

Meanwhile, NBA Commissioner Daniel Stern announced today that the two players have been suspended for the remainder of the season without pay.

Stern released a statement claiming "The issue here is not about the legal ownership and possession of guns, either in one's home or elsewhere. It is about possession of guns in the NBA workplace, which will not be tolerated."

"It is not disputed that ... both Mr. Arenas and Mr. Crittenton brought guns to the locker room and displayed them to one another in a continuation of a dispute."

Stern claims both players have expressed remorse, and added that both of the men "have volunteered to engage in community service in order to turn the lessons they have learned into an educational message for others."

Well at least they're not being paid to be smart. But from the looks of it, they shouldn't pay him to play basketball either

Schmucks. Tossing away great pay and careers to play Mine's-Bigger in the locker room. They oughta be sentenced to appear in public, dressed in t-shirts that say "I'm With Stupid" with arrows pointing at each other.
