Gilbert Arenas Served Custody, Child Support Documents At Halftime Of Magic-Heat Game

If you looked really closely at the TNT screen at halftime of last night's game between the Orlando Magic and the Miami Heat, you may have seen someone hand Gilbert Arenas a stack of documents. As it turns out, those papers were child support and custody documents for his impending divorce with his fiancee Laura Govan.

↵↵A process server stopped Arenas as he walked off the court Thursday night against the Miami Heat. The court documents, obtained by The Associated Press, were a California petition filed by Laura Mendoza Govan. She identifies herself as his ex-girlfriend in the documents.

In an appearance on SB Nation Radio earlier today, Chris Miller from Comcast SportsNet said he confirmed with Arenas that those were indeed legal documents for an impending divorce. Fast-forward to the 8:50 mark
