The 32-year-old Barnes was walking in the Los Angeles suburb when he was stopped and arrested on a misdemeanor warrant for driving on a suspended license.

Ford says Barnes allegedly made a verbal threat to the officer and was arrested for that as well.

A call to the Lakers seeking comment wasn't immediately returned early Tuesday.

Barnes was the Lakers' top-scoring reserve this past season, averaging 7.8 points per game.
