Cavaliers Rookie Charged With Disorderly Conduct

CLEVELAND (AP) - Cleveland Cavaliers rookie guard Jeff Trepagnier is due in court Thursday on a disorderly conduct charge.

Team spokesman Ed Markey said Tuesday the team is aware of the charge and is looking into the situation. Trepagnier is presently inactive on the team's injured list.

Trepagnier, a second-round draft pick from the University of Southern California, is to appear in Cleveland Municipal Court.

He was arrested early Sunday morning in the Flats -- a popular Cleveland nightclub district.

Trepagnier drove his car in reverse through an intersection and got into a shouting match with some men, according to a police report.

He was arrested after he ignored several officers' orders to return to his car and leave, police said.
