Chris Gatling: Former NBA All-Star accused of squatting in home


PHOENIX - A former NBA All-Star is facing several criminal charges after a police report said he squatted in a Paradise Valley, home and then tried to list the place for rent on Craigslist.
Chris Gatling is accused of breaking into a key box and living in the home from July 2010 to August 2011. A police report says the homeowners lived in California but had left the power on.
He later listed the four-bedroom house for rent for $800 and called it an "Ex-NBA" home online.
Court records say Gatling got a down payment from one potential renter, but another got suspicious and contacted police.

Get a job you bum and quit trying to scam people.

I have no sympathy for these ex-professional players or celebrities for that matter who are in the news for reasons like this.

He made 30 million dollars in his career and has to resort to this?

Former NBA All-Star Gatling pleads guilty to theft charges in house squatting situation

Chris Gatling, who had an 11-year NBA career and was an All-Star in 1997, has plead guilty to charges of fraud and theft in relation to a house squatting situation in Arizona.

The Associated Press has the details.

Chris Gatling entered the guilty pleas to one count of theft and one count of forgery on Thursday in Maricopa County Superior Court….

Gatling was accused of breaking in the key box at the home and living there for about a year. Police say the homeowners lived in California but had left the power on at the Arizona home.

In previous reports Gatling got caught when he had pretended to rent the home out, getting a down payment from one potential renter, but another called the police.

Gatling was the No. 16 pick by Golden State in 1991 and over the course of his career earned $29.4 million in NBA salary, plus he played a couple seasons overseas. He played for the Warriors, Heat, Mavericks, Nets, Bucks, Magic, Nuggets and Cavaliers.

He was known for his energy. He was the only NBA player I can think of with a steel plate in his head, needed after a fall left him in a blood clot in his head that required surgery.

Gatling will be sentenced Oct. 4.

Maybe the steel plate affected his judgement.

Or maybe he's crazy from the Arizona heat.
