Former hockey analyst Matthew Barnaby was fired from ESPN on Tuesday, after being charged with DWI.
ESPN ended Barnaby’s contract immediately after he was charged with drunk driving after failing sobriety tests and refusing to take a breath test. His driver’s license was taken away from him and he is required to go to Clarence Town Court.
Before becoming a hockey analyst for ESPN, Barnaby played for the Buffalo Sabres for a year during the 1992-1993 season. Thereafter, he played for numerous teams but stopped in 2007, when he suffered a concussion which led to his retirement.
In July 2011, he was accused of damaging a garage door in an attempt to get into the house of his wife and his two children. Due to that incident, Barnaby was required to complete 500 hours of community service in order for charges to be dropped. The latest charges make it his second time having trouble with the law during this year.
