27-year-old Gibson, a pro ball player who played for the Cleveland Cavaliers last season, turned himself in to the New Orleans Police Department this morning to face assault and battery charges, stemming from an incident which occurred during the Essence Festival.
Details surrounding the alleged assault and battery are unclear, but Gibson was processed and released from custody at 11:09 AM and cops have not identified the accuser.
Booby has also released an official statement about the incident.
Gibson released the following statement to TMZ, confirming he turned himself in to authorities in New Orleans earlier today, stating:
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.
Gibson says he takes pride in being a role model for his son and other kids who look up to him — and adds, “Once all the facts of the incident come out, I expect to be fully vindicated.”
I’m sure the truth will come out soon enough.
And for the record, Keyshia traveled back to NOLA alongside her boo to face the charges and the two shared an cute lil intimate moment while on their flight:
Cute couple! 🙂
