Police cite Larry Sanders, release fight video
Police cited Bucks center Larry Sanders on Wednesday for disorderly conduct and assault and battery in a fight last month at a downtown Milwaukee nightclub, then released security footage of the incident.
In the video, which you can see below, it appears that a fight breaks out on an elevated stage at the top right of the screen, then spills into the seating area in the center of the camera.
According to Sports Illustrated, Sanders is the man in light clothing who slips down the steps and is thrown to the couch, then appears to throw an object or objects before a second scuffle ensues.
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 expected to be out for six weeks after surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb suffered in the fight.
