Arenas talks to authorities

WASHINGTON (AP) - Gilbert Arenas of the Washington Wizards told prosecutors and detectives that he took unloaded guns from his locker in a "misguided effort to play a joke" on a teammate.

Arenas released a written statement after meeting with law enforcement officials. Arenas' lawyer says the player voluntarily met with officials for two-hours.

In the statement, Arenas acknowledges that what he did was a mistake and wrong.

Arenas repeated his earlier assertion that he brought four guns to the Verizon Center to store in his locker to get them out of his house and away from his children.
