The Details are sketchy at this point, but we do know that free agent guard Daniel “Boobie” Gibson turned himself into New Orleans police Monday morning on second degree battery charges.
TMZ is reporting that Gibson was in New Orleans for the Essence Festival with his wife, R&B recording artist Keyshia Coles.
The 27-year-old Gibson has played for the Cavaliers since entering the NBA, but is now an unrestricted free agents.
The details surrounding the alleged assault and battery are unclear, but Gibson made it clear this morning that he was with his wife when the incident took place, and it had nothing to do with his wife.
“Earlier this month during the Essence Music Festival, I was involved in an incident with other individuals while I was out with my wife.”
“It’s unfortunate that some see opportunity in taking advantage of people who work hard for what they have achieved.”
Gibson stated he takes pride in being a role model for his son and other kids who look up to him, and added, “Once all the facts of the incident come out, I expect to be fully vindicated.”
