Yesterday, TMZ said Barnes has been accused of choking a woman inside the Manhattan club and assaulting two other people — a man and a woman — when they tried to intervene. USA Today reported that an unnamed source said investigators had footage that appeared to show Barnes was the assailant.
Also the baller reps speak out to the press.
Barnes representative told TMZ that the player accidentally “butt bumped” a woman, who reacted by slapping him. Then, the representative said, members of the woman’s party, including several men, knocked Barnes to the ground, with one of them choking him. Barnes got physical to protect himself, TMZ said, and is taking pictures of his injures to help prove his innocence.
“We do not believe a crime was committed and are hopeful no charges will be pressed,” Alex Spiro, an attorney for Barnes, told TMZ.
