Gilbert Arenas Released From Halfway House

Gilbert Arenas is one step closer to getting his life back on track as he was released from a halfway house after serving slightly less than 30 days at the facility.

GREAT FALLS, Va. — Gilbert Arenas arrived home from a halfway house Friday morning, having completed one part of his punishment for bringing guns into the Washington Wizards locker room.

Arenas will now be transferred to the supervision of the Virginia Department of Corrections because he is a Virginia resident. Department spokesman Larry Traylor said Arenas will have to report to the Fairfax County Office of Probation and Parole.

Offenders on probation must report any arrests, including traffic tickets, and need permission to travel outside Virginia, according to information on the county website. Arenas is also prohibited from owning or carrying firearms during his sentence.

Arenas began his 400 hours of community service while at the halfway house. His second year of probation may be unsupervised if he abides by all of its conditions.
