Exclamation Artest Charged with 4

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- Sacramento Kings forward Ron Artest faces four misdemeanor charges stemming from a domestic dispute at his home earlier this month.
The charges were filed late Tuesday night. Placer County deputy district attorney Dan Quick said Artest will be arraigned Thursday on charges of battery and corporal injury to a spouse, false imprisonment and dissuading a witness from reporting a crime. Each carries a maximum sentence of one year in prison.
Artest was arrested March 5 at his estate in Loomis, 25 miles northeast of Sacramento. He was released from custody after posting a $50,000 bond.
Five days after his arrest, Artest said he'd stumbled as a father and husband and apologized to his wife and his family, as well as to the Kings and his teammates.
A Placer County sheriff's report said Artest grabbed a woman and pushed her down, then slapped her face during an argument. The report said Artest took a phone from the woman the first time she tried to call 911. When she reached 911, the woman at first complained that Artest was taking a vehicle from the home, according to a recording of the call released by the sheriff's department. The woman then told a dispatcher that her finger was cut and leg scratched, and that she broke the windshield of the vehicle.

This is kinda OT but I heard the Kings are going to hire a mentor for Ron and the young guys.

When the final * sentence* is handed down, there will probably be nothing more than community service, according to an attorney who has been quoted in the articles in the Sacramento Bee.

I think the Kings organization is working with the family, the lawyer and that when all is said and done, all will be fine.

I also do not think that Artest will be traded, I think other things ( many) need to be done during the off season, but he is a good player for the Kings.
