Gilbert Arenas Served With Court Papers In Middle Of Magic-Heat Game

Orlando guard Gilbert Arenas has been served with child support and custody papers as he was leaving the court during halftime of a Magic game. A process server stopped Arenas as he walked off the court Thursday night against the Miami Heat.

The petition seeks custody and child support for three children that Govan says Arenas fathered and has since "financially cut off." She is also seeking support for another unborn child.

I hope they didn't allow the opportunity for an Abbott and Costello routine to fall by the wayside. "You must appear in court." "But I'm on the court right now!" "No, I mean the courtroom, in which legal business is conducted." "Oh, I see." Sigh. Sorry, that routine was not as long as I thought it might be.
