Matt Barnes was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence.
I think the news report suggests that this was a fight, rather than a man beating his wife, but that Barnes was the aggressor.
It's tempting to paint Barnes with the "thug" label, given his appearance and on-court behavior, but appearances can be deceiving and on-court behavior isn't necessarily indicative of the way a man lives his life.
Keep the comments respectful, or BenQ will probably block this faster than Dwight hits a Derek Fisher floater. :)
