Barnes maintains his innocence in a brawl that broke out in a New York nightclub, but will cooperate with the investigation, according to TMZ Sports.

A "free-for-all" spilled over at Avenue nightclub, police sources described for the New York Daily News. A woman is claiming that Barnes choked her during the fracas, while Barnes says he was trying to defend himself. Another man claims that Kings center DeMarcus Cousins punched him in the head before he was attacked by Barnes' entourage.

The 36-year-old Barnes joined Sacramento on a two-year pact last summer.

A lull in the schedule allowed Sacramento Kings small forward Matt Barnes to turn himself in to the NYPD.
Barnes surrendered Wednesday and was promptly booked on misdemeanor assault charges, police sources told the New York Post. He is expected to be issued a desk appearance ticket.
The Kings don't play again until Friday, which created a gap for Barnes to fly to New York, where he was allegedly involved in a nightclub brawl on Dec. 5. He is accused of choking a woman while punching another man.
Barnes maintains his innocence but is apparently cooperating with the investigation.
