Gilbert Arenas Is Back Home

Gilbert Arenas arrived home from a halfway house Friday morning, having completed one part of his punishment for bringing guns into the Washington Wizards locker room.

Arenas drove up to his house in the Virginia suburbs of Washington in a tan Mercedes SUV at about 8:30 a.m.

He tried several times to punch the combination on the keypad to enter his gated driveway. After several failed attempts, he muttered “Alrighty,” got out of his car and yelled toward the house for help. A woman inside the house yelled out the code. Arenas punched it in and drove into his driveway.

Arenas was asked several times for comment about his stay at the halfway house. Each time he shrugged and indicated he had nothing to say.

A few minutes later, he re-emerged in a long-sleeve black T-shirt with a hood pulled low over his forehead. He hopped into a white Range Rover and drove off.

Arenas pleaded guilty to felony gun possession in the District of Columbia in January and was sentenced in March to a month in the halfway house. His sentence also includes two years of probation, a $5,000 fine and 400 hours of community service that can’t be performed at basketball clinics.
