NBA’s Robinson Cited For Public Urination In White Plains

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — Oklahoma City Thunder guard Nate Robinson is facing a possible fine after a police officer says he caught him urinating in public in White Plains.

White Plains police say an officer spotted Robinson peeing on a sidewalk outside a downtown bookstore just before 2 a.m. Friday.

Authorities tell reporters the basketball player was taken to police headquarters, issued a summons and ordered to show up in court on June 22.

The offense normally carries a $50 fine.

Robinson played for the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics before going to the Thunder in 2010.

  • VoteSharpton

    He was cited for only one reason: he is BLACK.

      Hey VoteSharpton – He was cited because he’s stupid and broke the law.

  • The Cryptojournalist

    C’mon, every man in their life has been cited for public urination. Welcome to the club, Nate

    The news here is that a cop was so stupid as to use this charge. He ought to have planted drugs on him, like in the real world. That way, he would always have a fallback position that no NBA player would want to dispute.
    Some cops just get drunk with the badge. Or the hats must be so tight that they cut off circulation to their brains and it makes ’em want to do things in uniform they would never dare to in plain clothes.

    Wait. Dogs are not cited anywhere in America for urinating in public.Their owners MAY be cited in NYCity, but the fact that a man, possibly in a park where there are no public toilets, just as in NY City’s crown jewel park “Central Park” which has NO public toilets, IS considered to have committed an offense against what law? This is police abusiveness.
    I am surprised he was not chained up and held as an escaped slave!
    Do you wonder why so many ordinary people don’t like or trust cops? They LOOOOve to throw their weight around, at least when they have their guns on.

      Uhm, Central Park does have public toilets.
