Gilbert Arenas of the Washington Wizards is being investigated for allegedly storing firearms in his locker.
They started investigating two weeks ago, you guys just found about it,” Arenas said. “They just wanted to know where I got them from and make sure they’re not dirty guns.”
Reporters asked if Arenas at any time showed the guns to anyone, and he — despite the protests of Wizards PR staff — said “Yes, I showed them to someone, I showed them to team security when I handed them to them and said give them to the police.”
Did he take the guns out of the locker room at any time? His reply: “Yeah, I took them out of this locker room. I had to take them out to get them out of here to give to security. You see they didn’t take the whole locker out of here.”
Arenas told me last week “I wouldn’t have brought them to D.C. had I known the rules. After my daughter was born, I was just like, I don’t need these anymore. I don’t want them around the kids. We are working with the league and the authorities.”
