Forward Matt Barnes was arrested in Manhattan Beach, Calif. on Monday night on suspicion of resisting arrest for a misdemeanor traffic warrant.

Barnes was walking when an officer arrested him on a $26,000 misdemeanor warrant for driving on a suspended license, and was released on $51,000 bond Monday night.

A post on Barnes' Twitter page early Tuesday morning read: "Oh.. For all you perfect people out there looking at me w/your nose in the air, who have "NEVER" missed a court date for a "TRAFFIC VIOLATION" God Bless You..."

Another post read: "Funny how a small situation turns into a "Urban Legend".. A $26,000 traffic ticket?? Come on now smh.. Have a good night"

The 32-year-old Barnes played the past two seasons for the Lakers, and led the team's reserves with an average of 7.8 points per game.
