LARAMIE — Police say the altercation that led to the indefinite suspension of Wyoming point guard Ny Redding included an obscene gesture and name-calling.
Redding was issued a citation for disorderly conduct and inciting a fight during a physical altercation at 1:07 Sunday morning at 221 East Grand Ave. in Laramie, where Roxie’s on Grand is located. According to a copy of the citation obtained through a public records request by the Star-Tribune, Redding admitted to “flipping a person off and calling them a name” after he had been struck.
The citation was issued by the Laramie Police Department, though the responding officer’s name was not listed. Redding has a mandatory court date set for 9 a.m. on Jan. 7.
Redding started Wyoming’s first nine games this season. He was averaging 6.3 points and was second on the team with 17 assists before being suspended prior to Wyoming’s game Tuesday against the University of Denver. A team spokesman on Thursday said Redding remains suspended.
Redding came to Wyoming in 2016 as a walk-on after transferring from Washington State.
