Rockets Guard Kyle Lowry Charged With Misdemeanor Battery
Rockets guard Kyle Lowry apparently got himself in trouble in Las Vegas.
He has been charged with one count of misdemeanor battery by the Clark County District Attorney’s office in Las Vegas, according to a KRIV report.
The Las Vegas Justice Court issued a summons for Lowry to appear before it on Feb 2.
If convicted, Lowry faces up to six months in the Clark County Detention Center and/or a fine of not more than $1,000.
“We have confirmed a criminal complaint charging Kyle Lowry with one count of misdemeanor battery has been filed with the Las Vegas Justice Court,” said Tess Driver, DA’s office spokeswoman, in an interview with FOX 26 Sports.
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**’.”
Rockets general manager Daryl Morey couldn’t say much about the matter.
“We are aware that a complaint has been filed in Las Vegas against Kyle,” Morey said in a statement released by the team. “We will work to get clarity on the situation. As this is a legal matter we will not comment further.”
