Former NBA All-Star accused of squatting in Arizona home

By Associated Press


PHOENIX >> A former NBA All-Star is facing several criminal charges after a police report said he squatted in a Paradise Valley, Ariz., home and then tried to list the place for rent on Craigslist.

KPHO reports 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.

The TV station reports 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.

Gatling's attorney, Michael Alarid, tells KPHO the case is a "misunderstanding."
