Sterling Moving Company Sues NBA Star



J K Moving & Storage says NBA star Gilbert Arenas owes it $26,000 for moving his family from Great Falls, Va. to “their dream home in California.”

Arenas, who made more than $17 million playing for the Orlando Magic this season, disputed $26,172.62 in charges to his American Express card by J K Moving & Storage and “claimed theft of Arenas’ personal property at the Great Falls, Virginia residence,” according to the complaint.

J K Moving & Storage sued Arenas and his wife in Fairfax County Court.

Arenas missed most of the 2009-2010 season with the Washington Wizards after being suspended for bringing handguns into the team locker room.

“J K packed and moved all of the household goods required by the Arenas contract and otherwise fully and satisfactorily performed all terms and conditions of the Arenas Contract,” the Sterling-based company claims in its complaint.

J K Moving wants the couple to pay their moving bill, plus 18 percent annual interest, and another 40 percent for attorney’s fees. It is represented by Robert Beagan with Flinn & Beagan, of Vienna, Va.
