Houston Rockets Forward Marcus Morris Involved In Bar Fight In Lawrence On Sunday

Phoenix Suns forward Markieff Morris went to hang out with his younger brother, Houston Rockets forward Marcus Morris in Lawrence for the weekend after hanging with the stars at NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando. Who knew that one of the Kansas Jayhawks standouts would end up getting into a bar fight the very next day?

Marcus Morris was ticketed early Sunday morning by Lawrence police officers after a fight ensued in a local bar. Morris was in town for the final matchup between Kansas and the Missouri Tigers as MU will take their talents to the SEC next season. Per a report, officers were called around 2:37 a.m. Sunday to The Cave. Morris was one of two men ticketed following the dispute.

"A male employee was allegedly punched by another man after a verbal dispute turned physical," said Kim Murphree, police spokeswoman. "Another man allegedly punched the employee from behind."

No word has come out if Morris was hurt in the fight. Marcus Morris is scheduled to appear March 20 in Lawrence Municipal Court.
