Kyle Lowry Charged with Misdemeanor Battery

New, comments

Former Villanovan and current Houston Rocket point guard Kyle Lowry has been served a misdemeanor charge for battery in Las Vegas, Nevada according to a Houston outlet.

According to the charges, the allegations stem from a basketball game Lowry was playing in between NBA players on Sept. 22, 2011 in Las Vegas.

The female victim, Infini Robinson, was one of the referees in the game.

The declaration of warrant/summons said, "At the end of the game, Lowry approached the victim and threw a basketball at her striking her in her torso. The victim picked up the basketball and tossed it back at Lowry. Lowry became upset and stated, 'B****, meet me outside. I will kick you’re a**'."

Lowry would later approach the referee to apologize, telling her, "I'm sorry. I truly apologize for what I did. I let my emotions get the best of me."

The Houston Rockets organization has released a statement saying that they are aware of the incident.

"We are aware that a complaint has been filed in Las Vegas against Kyle," said Daryl Morey, Rockets general manager, in a statement. "We will work to get clarity on the situation. As this is a legal matter, we will not comment further."

Lowry has been summoned to appear at a Las Vegas court in early February and could face "up to six months in the Clark County Detention Center and/or a fine of not more than $1,000" according to the article.
