EDWARDS, Colo. (AP) -A part-owner of the NBA Sacramento Kings was arrested on a domestic violence charge, but his attorney said Friday there was no physical contact or abuse and no violence.
Robert Hernreich, of Edwards, faces two counts of second-degree criminal trespass, harassment and domestic violence, all misdemeanors, the Eagle County sheriff's office said in a statement.
The charges stem from an incident Thursday night. Eagle County sheriff's did not release additional details or immediately return messages left by The Associated Press.
The 62-year-old Hernreich is also part-owner of the Arizona Rattlers and the WNBA Sacramento Monarchs. He is a developer who is working on the Edwards Condominiums project, which was designed by the World Trade Center site's Freedom Tower architect Daniel Libeskind.
Hernreich's attorney, Terry O'Connor, said Hernreich is dismayed at the term ``domestic violence'' in a sheriff's statement announcing the charges.
``There was no violence. This, in no way, implies that we are not sensitive to the allegations but want to clearly state that there was no physical contact whatsoever relative to the misdemeanor charges,'' O'Connor said.
O'Connor said Hernreich would not be available for comment. A home number listed for Hernreich in Edwards has been disconnected.
