Larry Sanders Out With Sore Thumb Following Alleged Bar Fight

by November 07, 2013

Milwaukee Bucks forward Larry Sanders’ rough start to the season continues to get worse — he missed last night’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers after getting hurt in an alleged bar fight. Per 620-WTMJ: “Police say they’re looking into a huge fight at about 1:15 a.m. Sunday morning at Apartment 720 on Milwaukee Street, downtown. The I-Team’s police sources say Sanders started that fight while in the VIP room – a fight where Sanders allegedly broke champagne bottles over a man’s head while security tried to break up the fight. He also allegedly punched the man’s brother in the eye. Police spokesman Mark Stanmeyer later said Wednesday that a victim, who is 26 and from Sussex, ‘told officers that his forehead was cut when he was struck with a bottle during a fight.’ The alleged victims left the club and ended up at Columbia St. Mary’s Hospital on Milwaukee’s east side. It took eight stitches to stop the bleeding of one of the victims. Stanmeyer said the suspect is 24 years old, the same age as Sanders. […] The Bucks sent the following statement before the Bucks-Cavaliers game Wednesday night: ‘We are aware of an incident from Saturday evening. The matter is under investigation and Larry Sanders is cooperating fully. At this time we will have no further comment.'”
