ESPN Fires NHL Analyst Matthew Barnaby Following DWI, Deportation May Be Next

Monday, ESPN terminated the contract of NHL analyst and former NFL player Matthew Barnaby after he was arrested and charged with DWI overnight.

ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz released a statement, saying, "We spoke with Matthew and informed him we terminated his ESPN contract, effective immediately."

Not only if he now without a job but Barnaby might also be forced to leave the country.

Barnaby might face deportation now because of his domestic violence case earlier this year, in which he was told charges would be dropped if he stay out of trouble.

Barnaby was sentenced to 500 hours of community service after the aforementioned incident involving his estranged wife and her boyfriend.

Monday morning, Barnaby failed several standard field sobriety tests and refused a breath test. The Porsche Cayenne received significant damage to the front-end as well as the rim that was missing a tire. Authorities revoked Barnaby's drivers license as well.
