Wizards' Gilbert Arenas leaves Montgomery halfway house

Dan Morse

With little fanfare, basketball star Gilbert Arenas left a Montgomery County halfway house Friday morning, driving away at 7 a.m.

Thus ended his month-long sentence at the county's Pre-Release Center, a hitch that stemmed from his gun troubles. He left a good impression on other residents, sometimes playing basketball with them.

Stefan LoBuglio, director of the center, wouldn't comment on Arenas's behavior at the facility, citing a policy of not commenting on specific residents.

But speaking generally, LoBuglio indicated no problems over the last month. "Our operation has run smoothly and without interruptions," he said.

Welcome home, Gil and I hope you realized what you did was stupid and dumb. You can get yourself together and get back on the court where you belong, not in some halfway house. I can't wait to see you this summer shooting jumpers somewhere.

Great!

Now how about serving your community service work in succession in the DC area?

And then go find another basketball court to play all of your silly-a$$ mind games.

That's great Gil, we will see you this summer at the Goodman League getting in your community hours, Probably half of those with silly comments never attended a hood neighborhood to watch a pro a work.

Wow! All the hoopla, and no one even noticed he did his time. maybe we can see all the hysteria does not matter.

Truly a defining moment in the "justice system". Another dangerous criminal released into the public arena.

Why is he covering his face? We already know it's him.

he is a fake. Covering his face to pretend he is ashamed and humbled. He is full of sh-t. Another Juwan Howard or Chris Webber. A phony who has had everything handed to him and is too stupid to use his gifts properly and too full of poor values to elicit any sympathy. Portis is even worse.

It's great to see you back on the scene again and I hope the new Wizards owners keep you around to play ball with your new teammates.... Keep your head up!!!!!!!

That shows how much you know. CWebb went on to make all-NBA five times, average 20 and 10, and got the Kings to within a hair of the NBA finals in 2002. I'd say that's a pretty impressive use of his gifts. As for Juwan Howard, the only problem with him is that the Wizards stupidly matched that offer from Miami, instead of doing a sign-and-trade. He wouldn't still be in the league all these years if he wasn't using his gifts.

What's this? Why isn't he laughing and mugging for the cameras with his hands and fingers imitating pistols?

These stupid thugs never learn. He's had his a_s_s kissed so long because he can throw a ball in a hoop that he'll never get his act together. The only thing these type of pampered primadonas are ever sorry for is themselves when they get caught.

He'll be back in the criminal justice system; it's only a matter of time.

you know what is most telling? This moron thought it was funny to defecate in a rookie's shoes. That is sick. Gross ghetto pig w/no sense of values. Kind of like Michael Vick with a more engaging smile.

You can give these guys all the money and nice suits you want but their character stays constant. They were not brought up with the proper values. You only hope, that somewhere along the line, like maybe with a stint in prison, they learn something. Their IQs are low, but not too low to learn the fundamentals of right and wrong, character and class. Anyway, let's hope that he, unlike Lawrence Taylor, will stay out of the slammer. Odds are not good though.

There is no question they are gifted. That is what is more disappointing. They do not have heart though.

Chris Webber is a moron who disgraced his school. Smoking a joint on the way to practice and then tries to smile and BS a police officer. What a loser. 200K per game and he smokes weed on the way to practice. He can't even wait until he is home! Absolute phony.

Juwan Howard made millions playing weak, and then when his team has been blown out, would make a jump shot and run down the court pumping his fist and looking angry.

Webb would do that too. Act tough like he is a serious man. Throwing up three pointers and acting angry. Underachieving.

They are phonies.

Portis plays hard but is a ghetto thug. He is NOT a phony come game time, though, like the other two punks are. Iverson, another thug, is the same way. No values but will give 110% on the court at least. Both of them must be respected, at least come game time, because of heart. Webb and Howard never had that.

This is a really minor story. He basically just slept at the halfway house and he was there for about 3 days.

What's up with that photo? When I first looked at it, I thought that Gil was Gort, the robot from The Day the Earth Stood Still!

Gil, you screwed up. You did your time. Be a man and show your face. Hiding just proves you haven't figured it out yet. Figure it out and then move forward learning from all this.

I was going to say "wowo he did 3 whole days for a gun felony" but then I noticed that the halfway house is in Montgomery County.

...what, the District is too good to have a halfway-house in it?!?

Before I get started....let me say that what Lawrence Tayor/Gilbert Arenas/Chris Webber did was TOTALLY WRONG, but please tell me if ANY OF YOU on this blog has NEVER EVER-EVER-EVER made a misstake in LIFE! If there is ANYONE on this Blog that hasn't done ANYTHING wrong in life...PLEASE STAND UP!

You know what:

("XCONSERVATIVE/JACKSON641/ETC.").... and all you so called "BLOG COUNSELERS", need to get a life of your own and leave Gil (and every other BLACK "rich" athlete that has done wrong in "your eyes") alone.Who died and made you judge & jury! What, r yall jealous that you don't get the same quirks that "they" get or something? Did your daddies not "SET U UP" well enough that u have to be mad at "THE RICH BLACK ATHLETE THAT CAN THROW A BALL IN A HOOP"!

I read these posts a lot, and it is too funny reading the "NEGATIVE" crap that comes out of all y'alls mouths. You all know so damned much....that's why y'all are writing about it, and they are actually DOING IT! Please tell me how much you get paid for pushing buttons with letters on them and putting your opinions on here.

I bet NONE of you have even been to a damn ghetto! I'm even surprised that you can spell it. If it were a WHITE MAN with the hood on his head...would u have said "HE" needed to go take his "THUG ASS BACK TO THE GHETTO"? Hell no! I bet NONE OF YOU would walk in "A GHETTO" and say ANY of this crap to anyone there....U DAMN POSERS!

Go run and hide behind ur white racists sheets, and cry to your mommies & daddies and tell them that your country club memberships expired and you need them to renew them.

GET A LIFE CLOWNS!
