RumorFix has obtained a slightly creepy mug shot of NBA forward Matt Barnes. The Los Angeles Laker was arrested this week for an outstanding traffic ticket that turned into a warrant; he was also charged with resisting arrest after an officer claimed that Barnes became obnoxious while being taken into custody.
Manhattan Beach Police have hit Barnes with a felony charge for allegedly resisting the arrest. He was released after posting $51,000 bail – $26k for the unpaid warrant and $25k for the felony.
“Funny how a small situation turns into a ‘Urban Legend.’ A $26,000 traffic ticket? Come on now,” Barnes tweeted.
“Oh … for all you perfect people out there looking at me with your nose in the air, who have NEVER missed a court date for a TRAFFIC VIOLATION, God bless you,” he added.
