Xavier fell short of its goal to reach the Final Four in Houston, but sophomore guard J.P. Macura wound up in the headlines this week anyways after causing quite a scene at an Irish pub in Cincinnati.
According to court documents obtained by the Cincinnati Enquirer, Macura “did knowingly pull his pants down” early Thursday, with several people there to witness the actions.
Maura, 20, was charged with disorderly conduct and obstructing official business, both misdemeanors with the latter charge coming as a result of the sophomore possessing an ID in someone else’s name.
“We have been made aware of this situation and we’re working to collect all the facts,” a school spokesperson said Thursday.
Xavier has praised Macura’s confidence and his contributions off the bench this season (9.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game) which earned him Big East Sixth Man Award honors. Unfortunately, that same confidence, when channeled in the wrong way at an Irish pub on a rowdy Wednesday, also earned him a pair of embarrassing charges.

Listen to Larry Platt, J.P., you need to pull your pants up.
