Matthew Barnaby Accused Of Using Racial Slurs During Domestic Incident

More information has been released regarding the domestic incident involving ESPN NHL analyst Matthew Barnaby that landed him behind bars last Friday:

New details made public in the court documents included accusations that Barnaby harassed his wife by swearing at her and used “racial slurs” during a series of harassing phone calls to her male friend.

The complaint provided no details of what racial slurs Barnaby is accused of making. The documents state only that he is accused of harassing the man “via phone calls 20-30 times threatening harm, racial slurs and with no legitimate purpose to contact the victim.”

Amherst Police Officer Thomas M. Brown reported hearing Barnaby using a series of swear words toward his wife during the incident, calling her “worthless” and telling her, “I wish you would die,” according to court documents.

Barnaby, who pleaded not guilty to five charges including felony criminal mischief, criminal contempt, criminal trespass, harassment and aggravated harassment, is scheduled to appear in State Supreme Court Integrated Domestic Violence Court Monday.
