Matthew Barnaby Pleads Not Guilty To Five Charges

ESPN NHL analyst Matthew Barnaby pleaded not guilty to five charges, including one felony, in an arraignment hearing Saturday morning in Amherst (N.Y.) Town Court.

The 38-year-old was arrested Friday night following a domestic incident that involved two victims, according to authorities. He was released from jail on his own recognizance.

Barnaby was charged with felony criminal mischief, criminal contempt, criminal trespass, harassment and aggravated harassment.

“Mr. Barnaby, it goes without question that you [must] completely stay away from anyone involved in this matter,” Amherst Town Justice Mark G. Farrell told Barnaby, according to the Buffalo News.

“We just learned of this so it would be inappropriate for us to comment,” an ESPN spokesperson said late Friday night.
