Man arrested after bar dispute with Celtics’ Rondo

LOWELL, Mass. (AP)—A man accused of taking a swing at Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo(notes) inside a Massachusetts nightclub has been released on personal recognizance. Eric Valarezo, of Haverhill (HAY’-vruhl), said he’s innocent but had no further comment after leaving a Lowell court on Monday following arraignment on a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge. The case was continued after a prosecutor asked for more time to investigate. Authorities say the 31-year-old Valarezo was arrested just before 2 a.m. Saturday at Brian’s Ivy Hall in Lowell. No one was hurt. Club manager Kevin Hayhurst says Rondo and several others, including bodyguards and fellow NBA players, were part of a crowd leaving just before closing time and didn’t seem to be acting improperly. Valarezo says Rondo pushed him and that he reacted in self-defense. Well at least we know it's not Matt
