WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) -- Oklahoma City Thunder guard Nate Robinson is facing a possible fine after a police officer says he caught him urinating in public in a New York City suburb.

White Plains police say an officer spotted Robinson peeing on a sidewalk outside a downtown bookstore just before 2 a.m. Friday.

Authorities tell reporters the basketball player was taken to police headquarters, issued a summons and ordered to show up in court on June 22.

The offense normally carries a $50 fine. 

The veteran guard apologized via his Twitter account saying "I made a silly mistake last night...I apologize for my actions, it definitely won't happen again!"

Robinson played for the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics before going to the Thunder in 2010.

Thunder spokesman Brian Facchini says the team is aware of what happened but would have no comment.
