Milwaukee Bucks' Larry Sanders cited in night club fight

The disappointing season for Milwaukee Bucks’ big man Larry Sanders continued on Wednesday.

The Virginia Commonwealth product was cited for his role in a fight last month at a downtown Milwaukee night club. Sanders was cited for disorderly conduct and assault and battery.

Despite the trouble, there doesn’t seem to be much to worry about, according to the Associated Press.

The two charges are municipal citations. The Milwaukee County district attorney’s office has said it has no plans to issue criminal charges against Sanders.

Sanders’ attorney, Michael Hart, tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Sanders was not the aggressor in the Nov. 3 altercation. Hart says Sanders has “gotten a bad rap.” A court date is set for Jan. 21.

A police official tells the newspaper at least one other person would be ticketed in connection with the incident.

Sanders is out for six weeks as he recovers from a broken thumb. He averaged just 2.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game in three games this season.
