NBA benches Gilbert Arenas

The three-time All-Star was suspended indefinitely after bringing four unloaded guns into the Wizards' locker room and later making light of the situation by pretending to shoot his teammates during a pregame huddle. Arenas pleaded guilty to felony gun possession and faces up to six months in jail; he is scheduled to be sentenced on March 26. The Wizards haven't tipped their hand about whether they will attempt to void Arenas' $111 million contract, but the union has said it will fight any such action.
