2:17 P.M. PST: Daniel Gibson’s camp sent HipHollywood the following statement: “Earlier this month during the Essence Music Festival, I was involved in an incident with other individuals while I was out with my wife. It’s unfortunate that some see opportunity in taking advantage of people who work hard for what they have achieved. In order to get the matter resolved, I voluntarily turned myself into authorities in New Orleans. I live for two things: my family and the game of basketball. For my son and other kids who look up to me, I try to be a positive example. I hope I can raise my son in a world where people have self-respect and can respect each other. I hope this matter will be resolved as quickly as possible, so I can focus on things that are important in my life. Once all the facts of the incident come out, I expect to be fully vindicated.”
1:30 P.M. PST: The New Orleans Police Department tells HipHollywood that Gibson is accused of “punching a St. Rose man at about 5:15 on the morning of July 8th at a club in New Orleans. As a result, the victim suffered a fractured jaw bone, and received medical treatment. A verbal exchange apparently prompted the incident.”
Keyshia Cole’s husband, NBA free agent Daniel “Booby” Gibson, turned himself in to New Orleans police Monday morning and was reportedly charged with battery and assault.
The former Cavaliers player reportedly surrendered to the 8th District headquarters in the French Quarter where he posted for bond and later released.
Details behind Gibson’s case is not currently available, but there are some reports that the alleged incident happened at the Essence Festival in New Orleans earlier this month.

DMX Is Clean, Sober And Plans To Stay That Way!
It’s a new dawn, a new day … DMX is sober!
The rapper’s lengthy history with drug abuse has been well documented by his many arrest and sometimes bizarre behavior, but Dark Man X is putting all of that behind him.
X has been in a treatment facility since late August and has been doing really well. The rapper opted for rehab instead of house arrest in order to improve his chances of kicking his drug habit and it looks like it may have worked.
Sources tell TMZ, the program is almost complete, but x will probably stay another 30 days since he’s been responding so well. X has even been able to take day trips with a friend to a nearby town.
Congrats to DMX!
