Ty Lawson domestic hearing delayed

An initial hearing in the domestic violence case against Denver

Nuggets guard Ty Lawson is being delayed until September.

Prosecutors asked for the postponement on Friday to give them

more time to investigate.

Both Lawson and his pregnant girlfriend Ashley Pettiford were

arrested following a fight at their home Saturday. Pettiford said

she heard Lawson on the phone with another woman and said Lawson

pushed her as she packed her things. She’s accused of breaking

Lawson’s phone.

Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson tells KMGH-TV

(http://bit.ly/15h1mcY) that the conflict ”was a mutual

situation.” Both were arrested and held over the weekend.
