DENVER (AP) -Denver Nuggets guard J.R. Smith, suspended by the team for the first three games of the regular season, was issued a summons on charges including assault after an incident at a night club Oct. 13, court records show.
The team announced Saturday that Smith was suspended ``for conduct detrimental to the team,'' but no details were released. Nuggets officials have declined to comment further.
Denver County Court records show Smith, whose full name is Earl J. Smith, was issued a summons on charges of assault, disturbing the peace, and destruction of private property for an incident Oct. 13.
A court date was set for Oct. 29.
In a statement released by the team in its announcement of the suspension, Smith apologized and said he hoped to learn from the situation.
Last year, Smith served a 10-game suspension for his role in a fight with the New York Knicks. Last summer, he was cited for failure to stop at a stop sign and improper passing in a car crash in New Jersey that killed his friend, Andre Bell, 21.
Denver opens the season Oct. 31 against Seattle.
