PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) _ Trail Blazers Bonzi Wells and Eric Barkley are facing criminal trespass charges after they allegedly refused to leave the scene of a fight near a downtown nightclub.

Police were called after about 50 people gathered in a private parking lot across the street from the club at about 2:30 a.m. Thursday, said Sgt. Brian Schmautz.

Wells and Barkley shouted profanities at officers who asked them to leave, Schmautz said.

Wells, Barkley and two others were cited for criminal trespass, a misdemeanor that is punishable by a fine or community service.

They are scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 4.
