Xavier basketball player from Lakeville, Minn. pulled down pants at Ohio bar

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Police in southwest Ohio say a Xavier University basketball player has been charged with disorderly conduct for his behavior at a bar. A report says J.P. Macura pulled his pants down with several people present early Thursday morning. 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 held in Hamilton County Jail pending a court appearance later Thursday. No attorney was listed for him in court records.

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."
