Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders was cited by Milwaukee police for his role in a late-night incident at a night club in early November. Bucks Sanders’ originally claimed a thumb injury occurred in a game against the Toronto Raptors at home, but was later confirmed to be a result of the altercation.
The Associated Press reports that Sanders was cited on disorderly conduct and assault and battery charges, two municipal citations, and that police will not pursue criminal charges. The incident occurred at a club called “Apartment 720,” which is located less than a mile from the Bradley Center.
The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that the two charges carry total fines of $551 and that a court date has been set for Jan. 21.
Sanders and his lawyer have said that they will fight to clear his name.
“We are going to defend him,” [attorney Michael] Hart told the Journal-Sentinel. “He has gotten a bad rap. The facts will bear that out.”
