Gilbert Arenas Charged with Felony

1/14/2010 6:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Washington Wizards star Gilbert Arenas has been charged with a felony.

Arenas has been charged with one count of carrying a pistol without a license, in connection with a locker room standoff with teammate Javaris Crittenton on Christmas Eve.

As we first reported, Arenas' lawyer has been trying to negotiate a plea deal with the U.S. Attorney -- we're told Arenas would cop to a misdemeanor gun charge.

A few years of prison time will do this guy some good. Maybe he can "turn his life around".

Why only 1 charge, he had 3 weapons laid out in the locker room and I thought none of them were registered. And what about menacing with a weapon? Celebs really get great benefits when it comes to the law.

This is really stupid - and from a guy who did have a really bad early childhood - mom an addict - father being called to rescue him from his mom and I think he and his dad may have lived in a car for a while -

The move was the stupid machismo move - but sad it happened.

It's all about the benjamins with you guys....forget about all the right done by him in the community ,monies to schools and under privelege. Big ,big, big mistake by Gil. It is what it is a MISTAKE!. The Wizards made a MISTAKE too,giving that large contract to begin with, with Abe's blessings or orders.Just let him go on to another organization and get a fresh start
