Xavier guard J.P. Macura was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and obstructing official business early Thursday morning, according to police.

According to the report, Macura allegedly pulled down his pants inside of the bar R.P. McMurphy’s and used “offensively coarse language.” Macura, 20, also reportedly gave the officials a fake Tennessee ID with the name “Myles Fox Morrissey” when they responded to the incident.

The sophomore spent the night in jail and will be arraigned in Hamilton County Court on Thursday.

Macura averaged 9.4 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game this past season. Xavier advanced to the second round of this year's NCAA tournament, falling 66–63 to Wisconsin.

The university has not commented on Macura’s arrest.
