Houston Rockets rookie Marcus Morris was ticketed early yesterday morning for his involvement in a barfight, according to a local TV report in Lawrence, Kans.

Morris, in Lawrence to catch the game between his alma mater Kansas and rival Missouri, was spotted in an altercation late Saturday night at The Cave in Lawrence. Officers were called to the establishment at 2:37 a.m., and Morris was one of two men ticketed.

"A male employee was allegedly punched by another man after a verbal dispute turned physical," police spokeswoman Kim Murphree told Channel 6 News in Lawrence. "Another man allegedly punched the employee from behind." Morris is now scheduled to appear in Lawrence Municipal Court on March 20.
