Police: Xavier U basketball player pulled down pants at bar

CINCINNATI (AP) — Police in Ohio say a Xavier University basketball player has been charged with disorderly conduct for pulling down his pants at a Cincinnati bar.

A police report says J.P. Macura pulled his pants down with several people present early Thursday. Police say the 20-year-old sophomore was also charged with obstructing official business for presenting a fake ID indicating he was 21 and from Tennessee.

The Lakeville, Minnesota, native was released on $1,000 bond pending a May 3 court appearance. His attorney didn’t immediately return a phone message.

The 6-foot-5 guard was a key player off the bench during 28-6 Xavier’s run into the NCAA tournament, where the Musketeers were upset by Wisconsin in their second game.

Athletics spokesman Tom Eiser says the school is “working to collect all the facts.”
