LAWRENCE, KAN. (AP) - Kansas sophomore forward Thomas Robinson has been cited with misdemeanor battery after a fight at a nightclub.

Jerry Little, the city prosecutor in Lawrence, Kan., said Tuesday that Robinson is accused of being involved in the April 10 fight. He said officers served Robinson with the ticket Monday.

Coach Bill Self said he’s aware of the “situation” with Robinson, who notified him immediately after being interviewed by police. Self said Robinson has been cooperating in the investigation.

Robinson averaged 7.6 points and 6.4 rebounds a game last season, and decided to return to Kansas instead of entering the NBA draft. He missed two games this season when his mother unexpectedly died, leaving Thomas and his 7-year-old sister without a mother or father at home. He also was out three games with meniscus surgery.
