Former NHL Player, Matthew Barnaby, Arrested After Domestic Violence Incident

Former Buffalo Sabres forward, Matthew Barnaby,  is scheduled to be arraigned this morning in Amherst Town Court on multiple charges stemming from a domestic violence incident this evening in Getzville, Amherst Police said.

Barnaby was charged by Amherst Police with criminal mischief, criminal trespass, harassment, criminal contempt and aggravated harassment. The domestic incident involved two victims. Something must have been terribly wrong for Barnaby to go off the deep end. This is sad for all involved, especially the victims who had to go through this ordeal. I'm not taking sides it's just that nobody wins in these kind of situations.

The incident happened around 6:15 pm at a Getzville home and Barnaby was arrested a short time later. He was expected to spend the night in the Amherst Town Jail.

Barnaby is currently an analyst for TSN and ESPN. I wonder how the worldwide leader is going to handle this. Will they fire him ala Harold Reynolds or will they give him time off to get this cleared up like they did with Jalen Rose. I'm betting on the former more than the latter.
