Wizards' Arenas pays $5,000 into D.C. crime victims fund
Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas has paid $5,000 to the District's crime victims fund as part of his court-ordered sentence.
Arenas pleaded guilty to illegal gun possession, a felony, in connection with an incident in which he carrried four unloaded guns to the Verizon Center in December in response to a confrontation with a teammate.
According to court records, Arenas deposited the check Wednesday. In addition to the payment, Arenas will have to spend a month in a halfway house as part of his 18-month suspended sentence handed down last week by D.C. Superior Court Judge Robert E. Morin.
Sources familiar with the case said Arenas and his attorneys are still determining when Arenas will report for his 30-day stint and which location. Arenas will have to spend his nights in the halfway house, but is allowed to leave daily to perform 400 hours of non-basketball related community service.
Arenas will also serve two years of probation.
