Gilbert Arenas Wants to Cop a Plea

1/13/2010 3:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Washington Wizards player Gilbert Arenas and the U.S. Attorney are negotiating a plea bargain ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Our sources say Arenas' lawyer and prosecutors are discussing a plea in which Arenas would cop to misdemeanor gun charges. We're told a deal hasn't been struck yet, but it could come as early as today.

Sources say the filing of charges would coincide with the plea, so it would all go down quickly. We do not know what they are discussing with respect to a sentence ... the prosecutor would recommend a sentence but ultimately it's the judge's decision.

Arenas is under investigation for felony gun charges for the locker room incident last month.

As for what a plea would do to Arenas' status as a member of the Washington Wizards, we're told G.M. Ernie Grunfeld and Arenas were text messaging each other shortly after the incident. In one of the text messages, Grunfeld wrote that Arenas had violated his NBA contract which prohibits players from possessing a firearm in a team or league facility. As a result Grunfeld texted the team had a right to void his contract ... worth $111 million.

If this was your or me... we would be in jail. This is why these guys keep doing these things; no consequence to bad behavior. This guy should not be allowed to ever play for the NBA again. Authorities need to start getting tough and you'll se the crime rate among high paid athletes decrease!

This guy should rot in a cell, and all of his $ should be donated to Haiti!!!

To help, you can also simply text "HAITI" to "90999" and a donation of $10 will be given automatically to the Red Cross to help with relief efforts, charged to your cell phone bill.

My previous clown comment was directed at Kooky the Clown, and it was supposed to come right after Kooky's comment, but comments got shifted around somehow.

Q    

Tiger Woods has now had his light skinned negro status decided for him, by his own doing. He has no accent, but his behaviour is that of a CAD, irregardless of color, but rumor has it he couldnt help himself, having a ho chasing army daddy in Nam and a ple dancing ho for a mom in Thailand. Poor thing, he was destined from birth to be a CAD himself.

Dude will never, repeat, and read the word again, never, be able to have a single loving relationship because robot boy never got one growing up.

His daddy did him wrong---turned in his childhood for golf and now Ho chasing.

I will personally boo and harass this man at any PGA event he attends in the Midwest. There are others like me who will do the same.

The stories of local girls here who have worked PGA events in the past where he was present are devastating in how he treated them. He was rude, cheap, a sexist, a grab arse, making passes, and overall disgusting.

His mistreatment of common people will haunt him the rest of his days. He also has single handily been responsible for all future dirty things sportstars do will be made public. Would imagine a few athletes would like to boo him themselves.

Stay away Tiger

It was Mr. Gun Slinger in the Gun Slinger Room with the Gun Slinger.
