The Milwaukee District Attorney apparently reviewed the facts of the altercation Larry Sanders was involved in Saturday night at the nightclub Apartment 720 and has decided to move on without pressing charges on the Milwaukee Bucks center.

From the Journal-Sentinel:

Deputy District Attorney Kent Lovern said in an email that no criminal charges would be issued in the incident, and that his office would be referring the case back to the Milwaukee Police Department to determine whether any municipal tickets should be issued.

According to Lovern, the incident occurred early Sunday and involved numerous people, including Sanders. A police investigation couldn’t determine how the fight started and who initiated it.

Larry Drew told reporters Thursday after Bucks’ practice that he hoped Sanders would learn from the situation and know better not to put himself in such situations going forward. Drew said that Sanders acknowledged that immediately upon speaking to his coach.

With his sprained thumb still in a splint, an injury the Bucks say occurred Saturday on the court rather than at the club, Sanders is questionable for this weekend’s home game against the Dallas Mavericks Saturday night.

He might come off as a bit negative, but I'm really not so bad. He just wants the Bucks to succeed, so he points out areas where they are coming up short. Someone has got to do it and he's ornery and opinionated enough to take on that task. He isn't sure if this should be in third person or not.
