Arenas served court papers during game

Orlando guard Gilbert Arenas(notes) was served with child support and custody papers as he left the court during halftime of the Magic's game against Miami.

A process server stopped Arenas as he walked off the court during Thursday night's loss to the Heat. The court documents, obtained by The Associated Press, were a California petition filed by Laura Mendoza Govan. She identified herself as his ex-girlfriend in the documents.

The petition seeks custody and child support for three children that Govan says Arenas fathered and has since "financially cut off." She is also seeking support for another unborn child as well monthly support for the other children.

In the petition, she is seeking US$109,000 in monthly support payments from Arenas and $1.3 million annually.

Govan could not be reached for comment.

A hearing in the case has been set for March 8 in Los Angeles. Orlando plays at Sacramento on March 9. Arenas and the Magic played at Washington on Friday night.

The guard was unavailable for comment, but his lawyer, Lisa Fishberg of Washington-based Schertler & Onorato, said in a written statement that, "This is a private matter involving young children. It is inappropriate for Ms. Govan and her attorneys to attempt to turn it into a public spectacle."
