Daniel ‘Boobie’ Gibson, recently with the Cavs (where he actually broke out) has surrendered to authorities to face assault and battery charges. No details on the charge itself, just the surrender.
An NBA player most recently of the Cleveland Cavaliers turned himself in to police in New Orleans on Monday to face a charge of second degree battery.
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 is a 7-year pro who played his college ball at the University of Texas, has spent his entire career with the Cavaliers. The Houston native was a second-round draft pick in 2007.
Gibson, who plays at the guard position, has missed extended time in recent years and is an unrestricted free agent.
