From Denise Jewell Gee at the Buffalo News:
Court documents accuse former Sabre Matthew T. Barnaby of “threatening harm” and using “racial slurs” Friday night during 20 to 30 harassing phone calls to a friend of his estranged wife in a domestic dispute in Amherst.
The case was transferred to State Supreme Integrated Domestic Violence Court on Wednesday, but a complaint filed against the ESPN analyst in town court provided new details of the incident.
Barnaby, 38, has pleaded not guilty to five charges, including felony criminal mischief, stemming from the incident Friday night at the Getzville home of his estranged wife. Barnaby is also accused of violating a court order and damaging the garage door of the home.
New details made public Wednesday in the court documents included accusations that Barnaby harassed his wife by swearing at her and used “racial slurs” during a series of harassing phone calls to her male friend.
The complaint provided no details of what racial slurs Barnaby is accused of making. The documents state only that he is accused of harassing the man “via phone calls 20-30 times threatening harm, racial slurs and with no legitimate purpose to contact the victim.”
Barnaby is also accused of violating a February court order by entering his wife’s property, criminal trespass, harassment and aggravated harassment.
