"The NBA has suspended Los Angeles Clippers forward Matt Barnes one game without pay for pleading no contest in California state court to resisting, delaying or obstructing an officer in the discharge of his duties.
Barnes was arrested in Manhattan Beach in late July after dining with his wife, Gloria Govan. The arresting officer reportedly had previously stopped and cited Barnes twice before and waited for Barnes outside the restaurant before placing him under arrest for driving with a suspended license.
"I was in the wrong to begin with, having the suspended license initially, and then after that it was probably because my car windows are tinted," Barnes said in late September.
