Reserve guard and three point specialist, Daniel “Boobie” Gibson, has been charged with battery in New Orleans.
The Cleveland Cavaliers player who is married to singer, Keyshia Cole, turned himself into New Orleans authorities for charges which are allegedly linked to the Essence Music Festival in early July, which his wife performed at. Details are unknown at this time, but Gibson was released on bail.
Daniel Gibson, 27, surrendered himself at the New Orleans Police Department's 8th District headquarters in the French Quarter. He was processed at Orleans Parish Prison a short time later and posted bond for his release before noon.
Details on the incident that led to the charge were not immediately available, but state law defines second degree battery as an assault in which the offender "intentionally inflicts serious bodily injury" on another person.
Sources told WDSU the incident took place during this year's Essence Festival, held earlier this month. When contacted by WDSU, Gibson's attorney, Ike Spears, declined comment.
