Martinez Released, Ordered to Stay Out of Trouble
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A top Wyoming basketball player accused of kicking a man during a fight has been released from jail and ordered to stay away from bars.
A judge allowed 22-year-old Luke Martinez to be released on a $25,000 signature bond Tuesday. The Associated Press reported he must also meet three times a week with his attorney and a member of the University of Wyoming's athletic department before his Jan. 28 preliminary hearing.
A police affidavit says Martinez admitted to kicking a man in the head as he lay on the ground defenseless during a Dec. 30 fight at the Buckhorn Bar in Laramie.
The victim was allegedly punched out by another Wyoming player.
The senior guard hurt his hand and was unable to play the next three games. He was suspended Monday.
