Matt Barnes arrested on traffic violation, resisting arrest
The cops just busted one of the NBA's most unapologetic tough guys in Los Angeles.
Manhattan Beach police arrested Matt Barnes, a free agent forward who spent the last two seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers, for a traffic violation and for resisting arrest on Monday night.
CBS Los Angeles reports that Barnes' bail was set for $51,000 after Barnes was "uncooperative" and "allegedly threatened" a police officer.
Manhattan Beach police Lt. Steve Tobias said Barnes was arrested late Monday as he was walking on a busy thoroughfare in the city about 20 miles southwest of downtown Los Angeles. Bail was set at $51,000.
Tobias said Barnes wasn't cooperative when he was stopped by police and was going to be booked for allegedly threatening the officer, which is a felony.
Authorities said the warrant was for driving on a suspended license.

Obviously you guys have never been racially profiled and harassed by the police.......did ANY OF YOU notice that the police never gave a reason for stopping him, don't you find that a bit weird.....why did they stop him for walking down the street......he's black.
