No criminal charges were filed against Sanders or anyone else in the incident, according to the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office. But an attorney for one of the patrons at Apartment 720 released a statement Thursday saying his client required eight stitches over his eye and leaving open the possibility of a civil suit. "I want to start by saying I put myself in a bad situation over the weekend," Sanders said in a statement to reporters after practice Friday. "I didn't make the best decisions down the stretch, but I would like to apologize to my fans here and Sen. Kohl, who I will talk to directly. I've talked to the team and apologized to them, just for shedding a negative light on our team and our organization. "It's not what we're about at all; it's not who we are. It's not what we stand for. I offer my apologies to everyone, especially the fans. I know they put a lot on me and they count on me a lot. "For everyone I let down, I'm going to get better, going to be better. I'm going to get better at this, on and off the court. I'm going to come back better. I just thank everyone for their concerns and being patient with me." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

No charges will be filed in a nightclub fight involving Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders. The Milwaukee County District Attorney's office announced the decision Thursday after reviewing the "altercation" that happened early Sunday. Sanders sat out the Bucks' 109-104 victory Wednesday night over Cleveland because of a sore thumb. The team said Sanders hurt the thumb in the previous game, a loss in the home opener last week to Toronto. ESPN.com

Drew said he believes Sanders will move on from the incident, which involved numerous people at Apartment 720 in the early hours Sunday. "Me as a coach, his teammates, the organization, everybody that's a part of his life, we want to help him to move forward," Drew said. "Hopefully he'll learn from this incident, he can put it behind im and we can march on." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

As the Milwaukee Bucks geared up to take on Cleveland Wednesday night, the I-Team stopped by practice hoping to catch up with No. 8 - Larry Sanders. But before the $44 million star player could walk off the court, Sanders was called into the office. Milwaukee Police want to talk to him too. Police say they're looking into a huge fight at about 1:15 a.m. Sunday morning at Apartment 720 on Milwaukee Street, downtown. Today's TMJ4

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. "You would think that a multi-million dollar basketball player wouldn't be getting in fights in clubs, especially knowing the season has already begun," says Sam Gleischman, who lives near the club. "Obviously being a resident and property owner on the block, I'd like to know more of the specifics," Gleischman adds. Today's TMJ4
