Bucks forward released on bail

Milwaukee forward Glenn Robinson was released on $5,000 bail Sunday after being arrested for fighting with his ex-fiancee.

Robinson will appear in court Aug. 19 for a preliminary hearing, according to Marcy O'Boyle, a spokeswoman for the Cook County state's attorney's office.

The No. 1 pick in the 1994 draft was arrested Saturday on charges of domestic battery, assault and illegal possession of a firearm.

"I'm very sorry for the incident," Robinson said. "I regret any embarrassment to my family, my friends, the Bucks organization and Bucks fans who have supported me. I will do whatever is necessary to resolve this situation and move forward."

O'Boyle said Robinson went to his ex-fiancee's house in Chicago Heights and demanded to be let in. She refused at first, but Robinson was later let inside. "He pushed and shoved his ex-fiancee," O'Boyle said.

"Glenn wants to do whatever is necessary to resolve the situation to the best interest of all parties involved. We will support him in his efforts to do so," general manager Ernie Grunfeld said.

JAZZ: First-round pick Curtis Borchardt will be sidelined 4-to-6 weeks because of a stress fracture in his right foot. The 7-foot center, taken by Orlando with the 18th overall selection, then traded for Utah's first-round choice and a second-round selection, missed the last 14 games in 2000-01 at Stanford because of the same injury.
