Former Cavaliers and current free agent guard Daniel "Boobie" Gibson has reportedly turned himself into police following a charge of second degree assault and battery. From WDSU in New Orleans: 

Daniel Gibson, 27, surrendered himself at the New Orleans Police Department's 8th District headquarters in the French Quarter.

Details on the incident that led to the charge were not immediately available, but state law defines second degree battery as an assault in which the offender "intentionally inflicts serious bodily injury" on another person.

Sources told WDSU the incident took place during this year's Essence Festival, held earlier this month. When contacted by WDSU, Gibson's attorney, Ike Spears, declined comment.
