Arenas Gun Standoff -- Locker Room Video

1/7/2010 3:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Gilbert ArenasThe Xmas Eve gun standoff between Gilbert Arenas and teammate Javaris Crittenton may have been caught on tape by surveillance cameras, law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We're told the Washington Wizards have told D.C. cops they have locker room surveillance video but are having trouble downloading it. The Geek Squad -- aka computer-savvy detectives -- are going to the Wizards organization today to help.

And get this -- a source connected with the investigation tells TMZ the Wizards have been "over cooperative" with cops -- as the source says, "almost as if they want Arenas to go down."

The source says "there is a better than 50/50 chance the U.S. Attorney will issue a felony arrest warrant against Arenas."

As for what caused the confrontation that allegedly triggered a gun standoff -- law enforcement tells TMZ it was all over a card game known as Bourré.

The NBA suspended Arenas indefinitely yesterday and, as we first reported, Arenas didn't have a license for the guns.

This is why an education is so important. It doesn't matter if you hit the real lottery or the genetic one (sports), without a proper education, you WILL eventually lose it all. It's not even about college, it's about BECOMING EDUCATED. Some of these dudes (who "completed" their sophmore year in college) are on 2nd grade reading levels. And people wonder why these guys repeatedly make bone-headed decisions.

Damm Ugh, you should have told that line to your forefathers years ago. Better yet Manson or Dahmer, or maybe that reality star guy who slashed up his wife and stuffed her in a suitcase.

I LOL@ geek squad, they are such complete morons, they will probably only make it worse, they need to call real professional data recovery specialists, not the idiots from geek squad.

Their remedy usually involves reformatting and walking away from it, claiming it was *not recoverable*, then charging you to reinstall the software they just formatted away.

Seriously, they are going to lose any possibility for anyone else to get the data correctly.

See, when the Black man does nothing dangerously wrong, then it's all about what message is being sent. When the Black man is possibly a victim of domestic violence, like Tiger Woods, then the investigation is stopped as quickly as possible.

Arenas removed the guns from his house after the birth of his 3rd child. Then, because he had been charged with having a gun in his car before, he had to put the guns somewhere and at once even if only temporarily. His personal locker at the team facility was the only place to safely store his unloaded weapons.

In March 2007, an aide to U. S. Senator Jim Webb tried to carry a 9mm with 45 bullets into a federal workplace. He was not charged because he said he was not aware of the gun. Now we learn that Arenas might be charged because he was not aware of the law. It just doesn't seem fair, especially because the unarmed Washington Redskin Sean Taylor was shot and killed by a home intruder.

Uhh, duh TMZ, of course the Wizards want Arenas to go down. He has been a disappointment ever since they signed him to a big contract like a year and a half ago. If he gets a felony conviction they can void the contract and be freed from the ~$90 million that they owe him.

Speaking of biased reporting ralph,

How come TMZ had breaking stories every time one of Tiger's sponsors even thought about dropping him, yet not one word about Charlie Sheen being dropped by Hanes. Smells likek a witch hunt to me. Now the challenge (or lack thereof) is to find out why....

He was going to store the guns in a gun safe, but the numbers on the dial went higher than he can count.

Peyronie's disease is a severe curvature of the erect penis. It's named after an Italian physician to King Louis XIV of France. This physician was the first to note the disorder back in the 1700s. While it is somewhat common, it is not often mentioned.

A minor bend in the erect penis is perfectly normal, as few penises are straight as an arrow. In some cases of Peyronie's, however, the penis can bend severely left, right, up or down, or even back on itself, making intercourse impossible.

Although the cause of Peyronie's disease isn’t known for sure, some physicians theorize that the curvature may form as a result of trauma to the penis. A shearing force causes indirect injury and microbleeding. During healing, certain growth factors are upregulated, causing an abnormal amount of scar tissue (or plaque) to form.

A curved penis can be straightened, but it’s important to have the right goals in mind. Rather than focus on cosmetics related to the aesthetic ideal of an arrow-straight penis, the real goal of treating a curved penis is to keep or restore sexual function.

Dont you love how Charlie Sheen can put a knife to his wife's neck and be such a cute darling, but Arenas brings unloaded guns to his locker room and become OJ? And where is Ted Nuggent, Sarah Palin and the NRA to come to his defense? Pale ass hypocrites!

ralph, your an idiot...Arenas pulled a gun on another guy... are you seriously trying to tell me a guy that makes millions a year can't find a place to lock his f**cking guns... I think the Wizards are cooperation so much because ... well, the f**cker pulled a gun on another guy... if I pulled a gun on a guy at work, I'd be out on the street, in jail... before you can spell R.A.C.I.S.T...
