Cops tell AZCentral that the Basketball Wives star was arrested after they responded to “an incomplete 911 call” from a residence around 4:16 p.m. Though Gloria’s name was not released by the cops, due to laws aimed to protect victims, the cops did confirm the woman as “a woman who lived with him and with whom he had a dating relationship.”
We reported a month ago that Matt and Gloria had began residing in Arizona following Matt’s move from the Orlando Magic to the Los Angeles Lakers as a free agent.
Matt, 30, was officially booked into the Sacramento County Jail on suspicion of domestic violence and maliciously obstructing the use of a telephone line. He was released after posting a $50,000 bond and is scheduled to be arraigned on Sept. 13.
Matt and Gloria’s relationship has always been plagued with cheating rumors, and the abrupt cancellation of their August 21 wedding did not help matters, with people suspecting that there was indeed trouble in paradise.
Matt has since taken to his twitter page to proclaim his innocence. “I was the victim but still got arrested,” he twitted before adding “DON’T LET YOUR EARS WITNESS, WHAT YOUR EYES DIDN’T SEE!!!”
Matt has since deleted the tweet about being the victim. The two are set to appear on the second season of Basketball Wives.
UPDATE – The mugshot of Matt has been added below.
