WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — Former Boston Celtic guard Nate Robinson is apologizing to fans after police caught him urinating in public in a New York City suburb.

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

Authorities told reporters that Robinson was taken to police headquarters, issued a summons and ordered to show up in court June 22. The offense normally carries a $50 fine.

Robinson, who joined the Oklahoma City Thunder this year, posted a message on Twitter on Friday saying he made a “silly mistake.” He promised it wouldn’t happen again.

Thunder spokesman Brian Facchini says the team is aware of what happened but would have no comment.

    This is news? Come on. Why is this even in the news? So he took a leak so what? Sometimes you have to go and can’t help it. I’m pretty sure almost everyone has taken a leak in an alley or somewhere when its a emergency and a bathroom was not around. What is the news media coming to when they start reporting on silly stuff like this.
