Depending on what facts are discovered in other interviews with possible witnesses to the Dec. 21 locker room confrontation between Arenas and previously obscure guard Javaris Crittenton, the official said one likely outcome would be the following: Arenas, 27, would be permitted to plead guilty to charges of carrying a pistol without a license, a felony that carries a maximum of five years in prison. Such a charge would require a grand jury indictment, which could be acquired quickly since five grand juries are seated at any given time in the District. Any other charges -- which could include misdemeanor counts for possession of unregistered firearms, carrying maximum jail time of six months for each count -- would be dismissed. In exchange for Arenas' cooperation and guilty plea, the prosecutor would ask for no jail time.

Ken Berger on Gilbert Arenas' situation. I promise we're going FanShot only from here on out on Arenas unless big news breaks, because I'm ready for actual basketball talk, but this report is particularly interesting because Berger talks to law enforcement officials. The big point: Arenas could plead guilty to operating an unlicensed firearm (I was under the impression it was licensed in Virginia, but maybe not) and avoid all other possible charges, whereby he'd avoid jail time UNLESS the grand jury places a lot of weight in Arenas' other gun charge back in 2003 (even though it was not in DC's jurisdiction).
