New York police were reportedly close to arresting Matt Barnes for his role in a nightclub fight.

First, the police arrested a woman who was allegedly at the club with Barnes and Kings teammate DeMarcus Cousins.

Larry Celona and Daniel Prendergast of the New York Post:

Laura Closure, 42, was arrested Wednesday at an apartment on West 20th Street and charged with two counts of assault with intent to cause physical injury during the fight at Avenue Nightclub on 10th Ave. and W. 18th St. earlier this month, police said.

Police say she smashed a 27-year-old woman in the face with a glass and punched another 21-year-old woman in the head during the Dec. 5 incident.

She was at the club with Sacramento Kings players Barnes and Cousins when things turned violent.

There are conflicting accounts of the incident.

Jasmine Besiso and Myrone Powell have sued Barnes and Cousins for their roles.
