Moving Company Sues NBA Star for $26K

FAIRFAX, Va. (CN) - A moving company says NBA star Gilbert Arenas owes it $26,000 for moving his family from Great Falls, Va. to "their dream home in California."

J K Moving & Storage sued Arenas and his wife in Fairfax County Court.

Arenas missed most of the 2009-2010 season with the Washington Wizards after being suspended for bringing handguns into the team locker room.

"J K packed and moved all of the household goods required by the Arenas contract and otherwise fully and satisfactorily performed all terms and conditions of the Arenas Contract," the company claims in its complaint.

J K Moving is wants the couple to pay their moving bill, plus 18 percent annual interest, and another 40 percent for attorney's fees. It is represented by Robert Beagan with Flinn & Beagan, of Vienna, Va.
