Not only is Matt Barnes a forward in the NBA, but he also likes to have outstanding traffic warrants and to threaten cops!
Sounds like a good guy!
Weirdly enough, we hear that Matt was just walking in Manhattan Beach when he was approached by cops — who then ran a check on him.
They found he has $26,000 unpaid traffic tickets and a warrant for driving on a suspended license.
To make matter worse, he then threatened one of the officers, landing him a felony for resisting.
We're told Barnes made threats against one of the officers — which is why he got slapped with the felony for resisting.
He might be a free agent, in the NBA, but he totally WASN'T free before he posted the $51,000 bail — 26 for the unpaid warrant, and 25 for the felony.
Then he tweeted this:
"Oh.. For all you perfect people out there looking at me w/your nose in the air, who have "NEVER" missed a court date for a "TRAFFIC VIOLATION" God Bless You… Funny how a small situation turns into a "Urban Legend".. A $26,000 traffic ticket?? Come on now smh.. Have a good night"
Riiiiight. Well, we'll believe it when we hear about it from the courts!
