Former Cleveland Cavaliers guard Daniel “Boobie” Gibson — who is currently a free agent — has turned himself in to authorities for what is being reported as second-degree assault and battery charges in New Orleans. Here are details per WDSU:

Details on the incident that led to the charge were not immediately available, but state law defines second degree battery as an assault in which the offender “intentionally inflicts serious bodily injury” on another person.

Sources told WDSU the incident took place during this year’s Essence Festival, held earlier this month. When contacted by WDSU, Gibson’s attorney, Ike Spears, declined comment.

Gibson has spent the first seven years of his career with the Cavs before becoming an unrestricted free agent this summer. He played his college ball at Texas and has averaged 7.8 points and shot .407 from three-point range over the course of his career, primarily as a back up.

  • What are the details? What happened? There seems to be a lot missing from this non-story. There's too much of this garbage, not just in pro sports but in life as well. Opinions are a long way from "FACT"!

    I wasn't there! I didn't see what happened! Yet you want my OPINION? You gotta be freakin' kidding. It seems like Yardbarker has a very LOW opinion of its readers! Yet, there will be some who will jump up and pontificate as if they knew the WHOLE sordid story. Give the world a BREAK from this crapola!
