NBA Gun Incident Grand Jury Bound

1/4/2010 11:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Gilbert ArenasA plan is in place to convene a grand jury to determine if NBA star Gilbert Arenas and teammate Javaris Crittenton will be charged with crimes for their alleged Xmas eve locker room gun-toting showdown ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Arenas -- aka Agent Zero -- and Crittenton are being interviewed by D.C. detectives right now. Law enforcement tells TMZ after the interviews, the plan is to take the case before the D.C. grand jury. We're told the U.S. Attorney (which presents local cases to the grand jury in D.C.) will call the head coach for the Washington Wizards and someone on the security team at the Verizon Center as witnesses.

We're told, in addition to weapons charges, Arenas and Crittenton could be charged with criminal assault.

As for their interview with cops, a rep for the U.S. Attorney's office is present and the case could go to the grand jury as early as today.

Both players have said the incident was nothing more than a prank.

Pro ball players, acting like, trash street bums.

Both should be charged & taken, off the team.

Bums with guns, in a locker room.

If these two really did pull guns I HOPE THEY BOTH LOOSE EVERYTHING. Tired of people who are given talent and able to better themselves doing stupid ish, they don't deserve the blessings and it should be taken from them. UNGRATEFUL BASTERDS

Hey dumbass #12. For God's sake, learn the difference between "lose" and "loose". And it's "bastards", not "basterds". It's no wonder other countries are laughing at us. While you are at it, learn the difference between their, there, and they're, and two, too and to. Oh, and learn how to spell "masturbate".

@Joe #13, you're the dumbass, loose was a typo but perfect idiots like you don't have typo's. And Bastard was purposefully spelled wrong because I thought they (TMZ) would bleep it out. As for all the other corrections, non of those are mine, but the dumbass that was correcting people didn't have enough HOOKED ON PHONICS to differ between the two people. BUT HOW ABOUT THIS "KISS MY AZZ" and azz was spelled wrong intentionally.

What's in their subconscious that would require the need for guns in the first place? Are they involved in drugs, too? If the Grand Jury doesn't bring back some type of punishment, society is being presented with the wrong mirror for role modeling.

These players should be kicked out of the NBA, simple as that. Name me another job where employees could pull guns on each other and still keep their jobs?

I can't believe this is even an issue - KICK THEM OUT!

NBA players are turning into nothing but THUGS and they need to clean up their act!

P.S. Amen to #13.

Here's a "quirky" idea....release him from his contract, suspend him from playing for one year and prosecuted just like anyone else would be who chooses to bring three weapons to work.
