Keyshia Cole’s Husband Arrested, Charged With Battery
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.
