Matt Barnes is responding to new reports that he choked a woman inside a New York nightclub early Monday morning.
The Sacramento Kings star posted as statement on Instagram that read: “There’s always two sides to a story.. The side the media consistently tries to paint of me…. And what actually happened! Don’t believe eventing you read.”
According to TMZ, while inside Avenue Nightclub, Barnes choked a woman before two other people attempted to intervene. That’s when the NBA player allegedly hit the other two people.
Per the news outlet, NYPD is looking for Barnes, who, at the time, was accompanied by his teammate, DeMarcus Cousins. Details surrounding the incident are unclear, but clearly, Matt is not in custody.
Cousins has remained mum on the incident and calls to the Kings have not been returned.
