AMHERST, N.Y. (WIVB) - Former Sabre and current ESPN Analyst, Matthew Barnaby pleaded not guilty Saturday morning on multiple charges stemming from an alleged non-violent domestic incident between Barnaby and his estranged wife.
Barnaby's official website states that the 38 year old currently resides in Buffalo with his wife Christine and their two children.
But in February, Barnaby tweeted "Can anyone tell me why divorces are so expensive?? A wise man told me- because they are worth it!!!!!!"
Barnaby had his charges read Saturday morning by Amherst Town Judge Mark Farrel, which include, second-degree criminal contempt, harassment, second-degree criminal trespassing, and second-degree criminal mischief.
Neither Barnaby or his lawyers gave a statement after the arraignment.
The former right winger was arrested Friday evening after Amherst Police responded to an incident involving his estranged wife and another male.
The police report states officers found serious damage to property. Police did not say where the incident occurred but did say the two victims were not injured and that there was no physical contact during the dispute.
Barnaby was released on his own recognizance and is scheduled to return to Amherst Court on May 18.
The judge also issued a non-contact order between Barnaby and the victims.
Police say they had the wrong man, and that Jerome Thagard, who spent four years in prison, didn't murder Steven Northrup in 2009. But the victim's family says otherwise.
