City Paper is not for tourists
Gilbert Arenas is in compliance. In fact, the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency tells City Desk the basketball star and former halfway-house resident is almost finished with his community service. Gilbert was ordered by a judge to complete 400 hours of community service after his armed antics at the Verizon Center.
The player’s supervision was remanded to Virginia. He has been required to complete 100 hours of community service per month. Arenas cannot complete the hours at a basketball clinic and has to spend some time speaking to “youthful offenders about violence and firearms and the dangers associated with them.”
Areans was also given 30 days in a halfway house, a suspended sentence of 18 months, and 2 years probation. He’s been completing his community service at schools and non-profits.
