Former Celtic guard Nate Robinson was cited for public urination early Friday morning, leading to a summons being issued a court date of June 22. According to the Associated Press, the offense normally carries a $50 fine.
According to AP, a White Plains, N.Y. officer spotted Robinson urinating on a sidewalk outside a bookstore around 2 a.m. Posting on his Twitter account, the guard wrote he made a "silly mistake," promising it would never happen again.
Robinson was traded from Celtics to Oklahoma City last season in the deal which also sent Kendrick Perkins to the Thunder. He played in just four games with OKC, averaging 7.5 minutes per game, having undergone arthroscopic knee surgery in early March.

The game-winning goal off the stick of Maxim Lapierre was a "lucky" break by the admission of the man who scored it. Lapierre was positioned to the right of Tim Thomas when he took a pass off the end boards and flipped it off the backside of Thomas. The puck trickled off of Thomas' pads and dropped over the goal line, providing the margin of victory in Vancouver's 1-0 win in Game 5.
"I was actually going backdoor for a tip," Lapierre told Versus in a postgame interview, referring to a pass he was expecting from Kevin Bieksa in front of Thomas. "That was a good play. We got a little lucky but we'll take it."
"The puck got across the line by a couple of inches and that was the difference," added Canucks head coach Alain Vigneault in his postgame press conference.
As for coming out stronger and outhitting the Bruins, 47-27, Lapierre said the Canucks were more in control.
Maxim Lapierre scored with 15:25 left in the third period to break a scoreless tie and lift the Canucks to a 1-0 win over the Bruins Friday night in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals. Roberto Luongo stopped all 31 shots he faced to record his second 1-0 shutout of the series. The Canucks can win their first Cup in franchise history - and Canada's first since 1993 - on Monday night in Game 6 at TD Garden in Boston.
The Bruins held the advantage in scoring chances and shots in the first period, outshooting the Canucks, 12-6. But the Bruins could not capitalize on three power plays in the opening period, and finished 0-for-4 on the night. The Canucks carried the physical play, outhitting the Bruins, 23-13, in the first and 47-27 for the game.
Tim Thomas was spectacular in the first and second periods, and big early in the third, stopping the first 20 shots he faced. But Kevin Bieksa fired a puck off the end boards that came right to...
