Barnes, Matt

Charge: Driving on a suspended license, threatening a police officer

Arrest Date: July 30, 2012

Franchise: Los Angeles Lakers

Age 31

Details: Barnes’ second career arrest started innocuously enough when he was arrested for an outstanding traffic citation, but quickly escalated to a felony when he threatened a police officer.  His demonic smile makes for one of the better mugshots – much better than his low-key mugshot following a domestic violence arrest in 2010.
