(TMZ) [Former] Los Angeles Lakers forward Matt Barnes was arrested Monday night for an outstanding traffic warrant, and for mouthing off -- BIGTIME -- to the arresting officer, TMZ has learned.

According to law enforcement sources, Barnes was busted by police in Manhattan Beach, CA for a misdemeanor traffic warrant, and we're told he also resisted the arresting officer.

Barnes is currently being booked by Manhattan Beach PD for the traffic violation, and for resisting an executive officer ... a felony.

According to our sources ... Matt was walking in Manhattan Beach around 8:30PM when he was first approached by Manhattan Beach PD -- and when officers ran a check on him they discovered a massive $26,000 unpaid traffic warrant for driving on a suspended license.

We're told Barnes made threats against one of the officers -- which is why he got slapped with the felony for resisting.

He's being held on $51,000 bail -- 26 of which is the unpaid warrant. more on this story
