Former Basketball Wives star Gloria Govan has been arrested for felony child endangerment, TMZ reports.

The charges stem from an altercation with her ex-husband, retired NBA player Matt Barnes. They ex-couple has a custody agreement saying that Barnes will pick up their 9-year-old twin boys from school every Friday. This past Friday (August 31), Govan instead picked the children up from school before Barnes got there.

When Barnes arrived, he told his children to get into his car, and when they did Govan reportedly went off. She allegedly drove after Barnes car and then blocked him and the children in. During the ordeal, someone called 911. When police arrived, Barnes showed police his paperwork solidifying thier weekend agreement.

Govan was then taken into custody and charged with felony child endangerment and violating a court order. She was released yesterday (Sept. 1) on $100,000 bail.

Govan and Barnes had a nasty divorce and obviously still have bad blood in between them. Govan’s fiancee is Derek Fisher, who is Barnes’ former Los Angeles Laker teammate. The two allegedly had a physical altercation in the past over speculation that Fisher was having an affair with Govan while they were still married.

Their four-year custody battle came to an end in June, which Barnes took to social media to vent about.

“This sh-t been going on for damn near four years now, man,” he said in an Instagram video. “I’m tired of it. I know y’all are tired of it. But y’all don’t know what kind of sh-t this girl is on, man. All these mother f-cking lies and allegations and trying to throw dirt on my name and doing all that sh-t man, but it all caught up today, man.”
