Gloria Govan, was so worried about an altercation with law enforcement before her arrest that it ended up being the reason she was thrown in jail, this according to the sheriff’s deputy who arrested the “Basketball Wives” star.
The deputy said when he was called to the scene after the custody dispute between Barnes and Govan, she was extremely uncooperative. In open court, the deputy testified that Govan said,
“Don’t you shoot me because I’m black,” and kept repeating that she “did not want to get hurt because she’s black.”
According to The Blast, the deputy explained that he gathered statements from Barnes and other witnesses at the scene, but when he tried speaking with Govan, she was “very, very angry” and that she made it clear to him “she doesn’t talk to pigs.”
In the end, because she refused to cooperate, she was taken to the station and arrested.
Govan also took the stand this week to defend herself in regards to her arrest. She claims that Matt Barnes and witnesses lied about what happened.
