Latvian police have provided an update regarding the altercation involving former Knick Kristaps Porzingis over the weekend.
According to the police, two people were sent to the hospital after the altercation. The police used pepper spray to "resolve the conflict." And police have reportedly launched criminal proceedings to investigate to determine what caused the conflict and the circumstances surrounding it; though, they reportedly aren't focused on one individual person.
In a video in the aftermath of the altercation, Porzingis is seen with a ripped shirt and what appears to be blood on his forehead, and -- as can be seen in the video -- he shoved a woman who was apparently trying to keep him calm.
According to SNY's Ian Begley, per sources, there is no belief that Porzingis suffered any significant injuries during the incident.
"It is our understanding that Kristaps was jumped and assaulted outside of a club in Latvia," the Mavericks said in a statement on Sunday. "We will provide an update when one is available."
According to TMZ Sports, Porzingis was in his hometown of Liepajai, Latvia, and that he was confronted by a "handful" of people before the apparent altercation.
The incident was between two groups of people and Porzingis was not the only one who was confronted, sources told Begley.
