PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -The brother of a Providence basketball player who ran onto the court to confront a referee has been released from jail after 16 days behind bars.
Jonathan Xavier admitted Thursday to Providence Superior Court Judge William Carnes that he broke the terms of his probation on drug charges by rushing onto the court during a game Jan. 16 against Marquette. Prosecutors said Xavier was sentenced to time served.
Xavier still faces a disorderly conduct charge for coming down the stands. He was upset that no foul was called after his brother, Jeff Xavier, was hit in the face by a defender's arm while driving to the basket.
Jonathan Xavier's defense attorney declined to comment.
