Matt Barnes Comes To Own Defense: "I Was The Victim"

Laker forward Matt Barnes, who was arrested Wednesday night on a domestic violence charge, told Sacramento news station KXTV he was not at fault:

Barnes responded to a text message from News10’s Bryan May late Wednesday, texting, “U know any domestic violence situation 9 outa 10 times the man gets arrested. That’s the case here I was the victim but still got arrested. No matter what I say people are gonna think what they want…”

Barnes posted $50,000 bond and was released last night, and also tweeted a defense to his followers:

DON’T LET YOUR EARS WITNESS, WHAT YOUR EYES DIDN’T SEE!!!
