Olowokandi jailed for nightclub incident

Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) – Minnesota Timberwolves center Michael
Olowokandi spent Wednesday night in jail after police needed a stun gun to
compel him to leave a club.

The manager of the bar flagged down police after Olowokandi refused to leave
at its 3 a.m. closing time. The 7-foot center was tasered when he walked away
from a police officer, but a second shocking was required after the first had
little effect.

Olowokandi was charged with disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing —
both misdemeanors — and released on his own recognizance Thursday afternoon.

The Timberwolves are in town to face the Indiana Pacers at Conseco Fieldhouse
Thursday night.

Olowokandi is averaging 5.3 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 21.2 minutes per game so
far this season, his second with Minnesota.
