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.

He's going to be banned for life from the NBA as a deterrent to others.

I don't know what I'm going to do today. Let me see.
What should I do? Oh, I know, I'll throw away a $111,000,000 contract.

Some have said it was just a mistake. Let him play on another team.
The problem with that is that an innocent person could have gotten killed
or seriously injured. Everyone gets mad, even very mad, but we all know we can't pulled out a gun and point it at someone. Things like this can escalate very quickly. Someone else can struggle with him and then the gun goes off and hurts or kills someone. Someone can accidentally drop the gun on the floor and the gun goes off and hurts or kills someone

So he gets a plea bargain, BFD!

From what I've read, the WW brass can STILL void his contract because he brought the gun onto the premises.

"Idiot" is an understatement!

Despite the possibility that hanging around with Gilbert Arenas could end in your murder, is there anyone on the planet cooler than Agent Zero? Essentially Gilbert Arenas is living the Law & Order that will inevitably be based on him. Guns in the locker room to recover gambling profits, sponsorship of a professional Halo 3 team (he says making the cover of NBA Live 2008 as the greatest honor of his career), has his own shoe, P. Diddy even threw him a birthday party. The only way Arenas could be cooler was if he was actually a good guy (minus the whole possible murder you thing). Wait, he is a Mentor to a 10 year old DC boy?
