Barnes out on bail following arrest

AP

LOS ANGELES — Former Los Angeles Lakers forward Matt Barnes is out of jail after being arrested on suspicion of threatening a police officer who stopped him for a traffic warrant.

Manhattan Beach police Sgt. Paul Ford says Barnes was released around 11:30 p.m. Monday, three hours after his arrest.

Barnes was walking when he was arrested on a $26,000 misdemeanor warrant for driving on a suspended license.

Ford says Barnes also allegedly made a verbal threat to the officer. Total bail: $51,000.

Barnes later posted on Twitter that a small situation had turned into an "Urban Legend" and scoffed at what he calls "all you perfect people" judging him for missing a court date.
