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:
The Kings were in New York for a game against the Knicks on Sunday. They lost.
