By Elliott Francis

Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas is scheduled to meet today with law enforcement officials about an alleged incident which could threaten his career.

Arenas admits he used ''bad judgment'' in bringing guns into the Wizards' locker room.

He made the admission following the Wizards' loss to the San Antonio Spurs over the weekend. His remarks follow reports about an investigation into the unloaded guns Arenas reportedly stored in a locked container in his game locker at the Verizon Center.

The legal system, the league and the Wizards could take action if the allegations prove true.

Arenas is set to meet with, and tell his story to investigators from the U.S. Attorney's Office and District of Columbia police later today.
