    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Nate Robinson is apologizing to fans after police caught him urinating in public in a New York City suburb.

    White Plains police say an officer spotted Robinson peeing on a sidewalk outside a bookstore just before 2 a.m. Friday.

    Authorities told reporters the basketball player was taken to police headquarters, issued a summons and ordered to show up in court on June 22.

    The offense normally carries a $50 fine.

    Robinson posted a message on his Twitter page Friday saying he made a "silly mistake." He promised it wouldn't happen again.

    Robinson played for the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics before going to the Thunder in 2010.

    Thunder spokesman Brian Facchini says the team is aware of the incident, but would have no comment.
