Cleveland Cavs guard DANIEL “BOOBY” GIBSON turned himself into police Monday in New Orleans on a second degree assault and battery charge, according to TMZ.
Gibson, whose wife is R&B songstress Keyshia Cole, was apparently defending his wife’s honor at the Essence Festival earlier this month when a man disrespected his wife:
Gibson has since been released from custody. The 27-year old had this response on the incident via Twitter:
Booby is a God-fearing good kid so I figured it had to be something major for him to be charged with assault and someone speaking ill about his wife—the mother of his kid—will just about do it. As for most of us.
However, Gibson has to show restraint in these matters. He has too much to lose and over what? Some name calling by a lowlife jack-ass?
Sticks and stones, Boob. Sticks and stones.
Either that or get a body guard to do your bidding.
