After an investigation by the Milwaukee County District Attorney, no charges will be filed in a bar altercation that involved Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders, according to Fox Sports Wisconsin's Andrew Gruman. In a statement, the attorney office confirmed that Sanders was involved in a fight Sunday morning at a downtown Milwaukee club, but it was unclear who started the fight or how it began.
Sanders missed Wednesday's 109-104 win against the Cleveland Cavaliers with a thumb injury. Milwaukee head coach Larry Drew said Thursday that Sanders, 24, is wearing a splint because of a sprained thumb, but that it was an injury suffered in a 97-90 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Saturday.
News of Sanders' involvement in the altercation came to light on Wednesday, and on Thursday a police report indicated the center was involved in a bar fight that sent two victims to the hospital, one of whom required eight stitches. A 24-year-old allegedly punched one victim and broke a champagne bottle over another man's head as security attempted to break up a brawl.
