It's been a rough August for Los Angeles Lakers guard Matt Barnes.

He is being sued for $25,000 for allegedly rear-ending a car in a March 2011 incident on a Los Angeles freeway that left a family inside with multiple injuries, according to a report from TMZ.com.

According to the report, which cites the lawsuit, Barnes plowed into the back of the car and caused injuries to all four people inside, including three minors. The family is now seeking a minimum of $25,000 for medical bills and property damage.

Earlier in August, Barnes was arrested in Manhattan Beach, Calif. for a $26,000 traffic warrant that was issued to him for driving with a suspended license. He was also charged with resisting arrest.

Now entering his tenth NBA season, Barnes averaged 7.8 points in 22 minutes per game last year for the Lakers.
