MILWAUKEE --Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders has been issued two citations by the Milwaukee Police Department for his involvement in the Nov. 3 altercation at a local nightclub.
Sanders was issued citations for disorderly conduct and assault and battery for the incident at Apartment 720, while Milwaukee police say citations will be issued to others involved in the coming days.
The Milwaukee County District Attorney's office reviewed the matter in November and decided against pursuing criminal charges against Sanders, referring the case back to police for municipal citations.
The disorderly conduct citation carries a $185 fine, while the assault and battery ticket is for $366. Sanders' court date on the matter is set for Jan. 21.
Sanders has yet to play since the incident, as he underwent surgery on Nov. 11 to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb suffered in the fight. Originally, Sanders and the Bucks said the injury occurred during Milwaukee's loss to Toronto on Nov. 2 but later confirmed the altercation was the reason for the tear.
The 24-year-old signed a four-year, $44 million extension with the Bucks in August, with the new deal kicking in starting next season. Sanders struggled in the three games he's played in this season, averaging just 2.7 points and 3.7 rebounds per game.
