Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas officially began his stay at a Montgomery County, Md. halfway house on April 11, where he will be spending the next month for bringing guns into the Verizon Center last December.?

He was transferred to the county’s work-release facility on Sunday after spending two days at the prison as part of the 30-day halfway house sentence, The Associated Press reported.

?Arenas, who is currently suspended from the NBA, pleaded guilty to a felony gun charge in January after bringing multiple firearms in the Wizards’ locker room as part of a joke played on his former teammate. ?

According to the AP, Montgomery County allowed Arenas to serve his sentence there as part of an agreement with the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Arenas was also ordered to pay a $5,000 fine and perform 400 hours of non-basketball related community service.
