I hope he does time.

WASHINGTON — Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas was charged Thursday with felony gun possession in connection with a Dec. 21 locker room confrontation with a teammate.

Prosecutors charged Arenas with one count of carrying a pistol without a license, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison. The charges were filed in D.C. Superior Court in an "information," a document that generally signals a plea deal.

If he gets less punishment than the average person who is similarly charged, then it's bullshit. But I'm glad they are at least charging him.

DC's gun laws suck, but what he did was stupid. He should face a hell of a lot of other charges that would still be valid even if DC's gun laws had been what I would prefer them to be
