After the events yesterday of Jared Sullinger facing charges from his domestic dispute and Sully releasing an apology, the Boston Celtics have issued their own statement about the issue: The Celtics were disappointed to learn of the allegations against Jared and are currently gathering more information on the situation, which we are taking very seriously. We will reserve further comment until such point that we have sufficient additional information.  I don't want to speculate on the case at all because who knows how this situation will pan out, but stay tuned to see what happens. I would presume that if convicted Sully would also face league and/or team sanctions on top of the legal repercussions.
