Rockets' Lowry takes plea in Vegas misdemeanor case
LAS VEGAS, NV -- A lawyer entered a no contest plea for Kyle Lowry in a bid for dismissal of a misdemeanor battery case alleging the Houston Rockets guard threw a basketball at a female referee and threatened her during a game at a Las Vegas gym last September.
A court clerk said the 25-year-old Lowry didn't appear Thursday with his lawyer, Patrick McDonald, before Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Eric Goodman.
Goodman agreed to dismiss the case July 19 if Lowry completes 100 hours of community service at a battered women's shelter or a similar program, completes an impulse control counseling program and stays out of trouble for six months.
The plea was first reported by the Las Vegas Sun.
McDonald didn't immediately respond to messages seeking comment and Lowry wouldn't say much about it after Rockets practice on Thursday.
"I really don't have a comment on that," he said. "It's dealt with, and there's really nothing to comment on about it."
