Glen "Big Baby" Davis has apologized for creating a disturbance at a downtown Orlando, Fla., motel this past weekend.
The Orlando Magic forward "sincerely apologized" Tuesday for damaging a computer at a Travelodge after a loss to the Boston Celtics on Friday night.
According to police, a 911 call was placed and then hung up on at 4:03 a.m. Saturday. When officers arrived at the scene, they were told that neither party wanted a report written. No charges were filed.
According to video posted on TMZ Sports, which first reported the incident, Davis is seen talking to a hotel clerk and then at some point puts his head down on the counter. A short time later he grabs a keyboard behind the counter and rips it away from the computer. He tosses it across the room and appears to stumble as he heads to the exit. Davis apparently was set off because he was told there were no rooms available, TMZ reported.
He apologized for the incident on Twitter:
In regards to the incident that occurred on Friday night, I want to sincerely apologize for my actions. There is no excuse for what I did...— Glen Davis (@iambigbaby11) November 12, 2013
... I was obviously wrong and I take full responsibility. I apologize to the Magic, my fans and the city of Orlando.— Glen Davis (@iambigbaby11) November 12, 2013
On Tuesday, the Magic released a statement saying they had fined the forward an undisclosed amount of money.
"We will not tolerate or condone this type of behavior," general manager Rob Hennigan said in the statement. "As we have stated repeatedly, when a player puts on an Orlando Magic uniform, he is representing something much greater than himself. We expect our players to uphold a certain standard of conduct and character at all times."
