Matt Barnes Accused Of Assaulting A Woman At A Nightclub In New York

The NBA player was caught on video allegedly boasting about it.

Proffesional basketball player Matt Barnes is the latest big-name athlete to be accused of assaulting a woman. The NYPD is currently searching for the Sacramento Kings player after he fled the scene of the alleged crime.

TMZ is reporting that police responded to a call from Avenue Nightclub at around midnight. Barnes allegedly choked a woman and punched two others that attempted to intervene in the fight.

TMZ also seems to have caught Matt and a teammate (possibly DeMarcus Cousins) boasting about the brawl on video before fleeing:
