Arenas Case Could Go Before Grand Jury Tuesday

The Washington Post’s crime blog, The Crime Scene, is reporting that the Gilbert Arenas gun case is likely to come before a grand jury as soon as Tuesday.

According to Keith L. Alexander, DC prosecutors are planning to present whatever evidence they have to a Superior Court grand jury Tuesday, but could hold off if they receive more evidence. An indictment could therefore come as soon as this week.

Two law enforcement sources said Tuesday morning that prosecutors planned on presenting evidence to a Superior Court grand jury in the Gilbert Arenas gun case as soon as today.

The case would go to the existing panel. The Examiner reported this morning that a grand jury had been convened for the case and it was “mulling” bringing gun charges against the Washington Wizards guard.

If the grand jury decides to charge Arenas, the indictment could come later this week. The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the case is ongoing, cautioned that they are still investigating. If they uncover more evidence, they would present that to the panel and that could delay charges, the sources said.
