Tenerife Rural Stars
Basketball pair face proceedings over police assault
Basketball players Antwain Barbour and Gimel Lewis could face a court appearance soon over a disturbance which took place after a late night game. The Tenerife Rural stars spent the night in police cells after allegedly assaulting officers who tried to detain them over an incident in a popular night-spot in La Laguna, hours after the win over Lleida.

La Laguna - 20.01.2008 - According to reports, the players were rebuked by a plain-clothed officer for urinating in the street and an argument followed. Other policemen on patrol in the busy district rushed to the aid of their colleague and at least one officer was injured in the scuffle. Other reports said that the officers had responded to a call that the pair had threatened a girl in a pub. The club has repeatedly refused to comment on the affair, which it says is an internal matter. Police sources say that the players could face expulsion from Spain if they are convicted of assault.
