Kyle Lowry has been charged with misdemeanor assault of a female referee stemmig from a September charity game in Las Vegas. MyFoxHouston.com reports
The female victim, Infini Robinson, was one of the referees in the game.

The declaration of warrant/summons said, "At the end of the game, Lowry approached the victim and threw a basketball at her striking her in her torso. The victim picked up the basketball and tossed it back at Lowry. Lowry became upset and stated, 'B****, meet me outside. I will kick you’re a**'."

The warrant goes on to allege that after Lowry walked away, Robinson went to the designated area for officials to change shoes and clothing, and she was hit with a basketball at a high rate of speed.

Also according to the warrant, Charlotte Bobcats forward Corey Maggette apologized to Robinson on behalf of Lowry and that Lowry also approached Robinson and said, "I'm sorry. I truly apologize for what I did. I let my emotions get the best of me."
If convicted, Lowry faces six months in jail. Even in the course of a basketball game, the prosecutor's office in Vegas told the station that Robinson is considered a "protected person" in the course of the game. 

Another referee verified Robinson's claim and stated Lowry was also abusive to him. 

Lowry is enjoying the prime of his career in Houston who has struggled out of the gate this season.  

Rockets' GM Daryl Morey issued a statement to the station that the organization was aware of the summons issued and that they were monitoring the situation.  Morey said the Rockets would not comment further. 

This summer, several players had issues during the exhibitions to fill the time during the lockout. Michael Beasley shoved a fan at an event in New York and Matt Barnes punched an opponent. The charges against Lowry are more serious due to their nature.

If he had told a MAN to meet him outside i have no problem with that, let them duke it out... but to look a woman in the eye and call her a bitch, then tell her to meet you outside so you can kick her a**??? wow, what a D-BAG!

There are more than a few NBA refs who deserve to have basketballs thrown at them.  Maybe they would think twice about making bogus calls if there was the threat of getting pelted with basketballs.  

Although I root against Boston I know for a fact their fan base isn't represented by this moron...Crying about calls and no class

Standing Behind the Victim

According to the warrant Lowry made a mistake... a big one. And he apologied for it. I assume, since I wasn't there, that his apology was sincere. Either way, he admittedly made this mistake. It seems the victim, Infini Robinson, has chosen to press charges and that's her right. I stand behind her as we all should. Hopefully Lowry learns from this and doesn't do it again.

Man, it's tough to be a sports fan. These spoiled babies throwing fits because they have to make millions of dollars to play a game! I would love to see guys like this goon try to get a real job and deal with "real" life. I hope he gets sent to the playpen for a timeout, the little baby!

What a loser, I bet his parents are proud. I don't think he would like it if it was done to his mother or sister. It doesn't take much of a man to abuse a woman, he probably doesn't have the balls to do that to a man. The guys a coward.
