Case was doomed from the beginning since Miss Govan wasn’t going to cooperate, so Barnes skates without any charges being filed.

TMZ has the details:

The Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office has determined there is not enough evidence to prosecute Barnes for assaulting “Basketball Wives” star Gloria Govan at their home on September 8.

As we previously reported, cops responded to the couple’s home after a disconnected 911 call and noticed that both Barnes and Govan had visible injuries. Cops later determined the two had been in a physical confrontation and eventually arrested Barnes on suspicion of felony domestic violence.

Govan has previously stated that the allegations are false … adding that Barnes has never abused her or her family.

The D.A. has stated, “The decision was made following additional investigation, and was based on the insufficiency of the evidence.”

Being in the NBA, it wasn’t like any type of punishment would have been handed down, but at least now he doesn’t have to worry about it hanging over his head as the season starts.

Hopefully he got the phone replaced, maybe Jeff Lewis could help him remodel.
