Sacramento Kings star Matt Barnes is wanted by NYPD for questioning after he allegedly choked a woman inside a popular NYC nightclub early Monday morning … TMZ Sports has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell us cops got a 911 call to Avenue Nightclub after midnight, reporting a man assaulting 2 women and another man. We’re told things got physical when Barnes allegedly choked one woman during an argument — and when 2 other people tried to intervene … he punched both of them.
Barnes, and at least one of his teammates, fled the scene before cops showed up. The Kings were in town to play the Knicks on Sunday. They lost.
Cops are investigating and looking for Barnes.
