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.
